In 2021, Our Fund Foundation completed a comprehensive community needs assessment in order to align its giving with current needs and priorities. These findings identified 3 categories for grantmaking that encompass the most critical needs and priorities of the community:
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 HIV/AIDS, addiction and mental health, and healthcare access, affordability, and responsiveness.
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 the agencies, programs and services that increase LGBTQ inclusion and acceptance and expand LGBTQ-affirming protection.
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.
