Connecting People Who Care with Causes That Matter

Our Fund Foundation is a community partner that creates a better future for all by pursuing the community’s greatest opportunities and addressing its most critical challenges. By inclusively uniting people, institutions and resources from throughout South Florida, Our Fund produces significant, widely shared and lasting results.

Through its grant programs, philanthropy initiatives, and agency and community networking and education efforts, Our Fund stands as a powerful force for good in South Florida and is committed to community leadership as a key strategy for delivering community impact.

Providing much-needed targeted support

Our Fund has determined seven fields of interests that are especially important to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. Whether you decide to establish your own fund, contribute to a field of interest fund, or give directly to a specific organization, Our Fund is here to make the connection so that you have the best philanthropic choice.

Youth Fund

Our Fund’s Youth Fund uplifts LGBTQ youth and strives to provide safe and productive home and school environments.  Funds are distributed to South Florida agencies that address the staggering statistics of violence and bullying affecting LGBTQ youth that result in poorer educational and health outcomes versus cisgender heterosexual counterparts, including lower GPAs, less likely planning for higher eduation and more likely experience of self-esteem problems.

Elder's Fund

At a time when LGBTQ older adults should be enjoying their golden years, many  face high rates of economic insecurity and are more likely to be affected by severe health and wellness issues.  Our Fund’s Elders’ Fund supports South Florida agencies that address the unique needs of LGBTQ older adults, including training to provide culturally competent service providers, improving the lives of HIV+ older adults and reducing isolation and its effects that many older LGBTQ adults experience.

Women's Fund

Recognizing that the women’s LBT community is a marginalized class within a minority, Our Fund directs resources to uplift South Florida’s LBT community and combat the historical inequities that are pervasive within the LGBTQ community.

Transgender Fund

Our Fund’s Transgender Fund provides grants to service providers to advance the quality of life for transgender people.  Because programs and services that serve and uplift South Florida’s large transgender community are deeply under-resourced, Our Fund plays an integral role in directing attention and philanthropy to these issues.


Because LGBTQ people are at greater risk for mental and behavioral health challenges and for diseases such as cancer, heart disease and HIV/AIDS, Our Fund’s Health Fund promotes community health by addressing the unique needs and challenges facing the LGBTQ community.  Funds are distributed to South Florida agencies that promote education and address the disparities facing LGBTQ and HIV+ individuals related to access to healthcare, insurance and other barriers affecting the physical well-being of South Florida’s LGBTQ community.

Arts & Culture Fund

Our Fund recognizes the importance of arts and culture to inspire, empower and transform individuals and communities. Grants from this fund promote South Florida artistic expression that amplifies LGBTQ voices and works in the service of preserving, telling and celebrating LGBTQ stories and to promoting LGBTQ equality and social justice.

Social Justice Fund

Our Fund’s Social Justice Fund envisions a world in which all LGBTQ people live with dignity, safety, and opportunity. Preference for grants from the Fund is given to agencies, programs and services that increase LGBTQ inclusion and acceptance and expand LGBTQ-affirming protections.

SAGE@Sunshine Friendly Visitor Program

Given that LGBTQ older adults are twice as likely to live alone, they are more susceptible to the health disparities created by aging in isolation. With SAGE@Sunshine, Our Fund brings together SAGE, the world’s oldest and largest organization working with and on behalf of LGBTQ older people, and Sunshine Cathedral whose Noble A. McArtor Adult Day Care Center was founded to create a safe, open and home-like atmosphere for all seniors and their caregivers to enjoy.  Together, these two agencies match community volunteers with socially isolated, often home-bound LGBTQ elders to form relationships that are mutually rewarding and relieve chronic isolation.

Uniting LGBTQ Leadership

Our Fund Foundation hosts quarterly meetings of executive leaders serving organizations that advance LGBTQ causes in South Florida. The program serves to unite South Florida’s non-profit community and introduce organizations and leaders to each other with the hopes of identifying areas of interest and potential collaboration.

Agencies who make a difference

South Florida enjoys a wide and diverse network of non-profits that serve to advance LGBTQ causes. Our Fund Foundation is proud to partner with these agencies to create a more livable community for all residents of South Florida.

Health & Wellness
Our Fund’s grantmaking addresses the unique health related risks and disparities LGBTQ individuals experience, including physical, emotional, social, and behavioral aspects of health as well as the social isolation of LGBTQ elders. Included as priorities for Our Fund are HIV/AIDS, addiction and mental health, and healthcare access, affordability, and responsiveness.

Equality & Social Justice
This grantmaking category encompasses discrimination prevention, equity, and inclusion and includes advocacy, political mobilization, rights, and legal protections. It is applicable to prejudice, bullying, hate crimes, and vulnerable population and minority population empowerment.

Arts & Culture
Our Fund recognizes the importance of the arts and culture to inspire, empower and transform individuals and communities. Grants from this fund promote South Florida artistic expression that amplifies LGBTQ voices and works in the service of preserving, telling and celebrating LGBTQ stories and promoting LGBTQ equality and social justice.

Helping to inform our community

With unprecedented legislative efforts aimed at dismantling hard-earned LGBTQ civil rights, it is more critical than ever to remain informed, vigilant, and focused. Equality Florida has assembled a panel of LGBTQ leaders to discuss the impact of the November 8th election, coupled with recent legislative actions, and what our community can do to determine our own future in Florida, and beyond.

Hosted with Equality Florida, the annual Fall Forum was held on Monday, November 14th at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale.
