How you can make a difference!

A tax-exempt community foundation, Our Fund's mission is to promote a culture of philanthropy by uniting donors with organizations supporting the LGBT community.

Our Fund Foundation has a number of various ways in which you can give to the LGBT community - with your current giving or through the planning of your legacy giving after your death.

What We Do Brochure

Create a legacy that reflects your values

What organization or cause has had an impact on your life? What do you want to be remembered for? A planned legacy gift can benefit future generations - all in your name.

Strengthen and secure the future work of LGBT organizations

Support causes that are important to you such as seniors, youth, the arts or equal rights

Pool your estate giving with others to maximize returns and increase impact

Remain confident that your legacy gifts will be used according to your intentions

Make a difference in OUR community

If you have supported various organizations or causes through the course of your life that are very important to you, Legacy Giving allows you to continue to have that impact after your death. Our Fund encourages individuals to be as purposeful with their giving after they are gone as they are while living. By creating a charitable fund from your estate, you will have a lasting impact for future generations.

How to provide much-needed targeted support

Our Fund has determined six 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.

Senior’s Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT elders through providing resources that give access to important health and social services for seniors

Women’s Fund support programs that focus on the health and well-being of lesbians.

Youth Fund provides grants to organizations that support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth so that young people can attain their full potential.

HIV/AIDS Fund recognizes the unique situation that exists in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties as the #1 and #2 counties in the U.S. for new HIV/AIDS transmissions – with most new cases involving MSM (men who have sex with men). The Fund provides HIV services in South Florida and promotes education and public awareness on HIV/AIDS issues.

Arts & Culture Fund is committed to bolstering a cultural landscape in South Florida that allows for LGBT artistic expression.
Social Justice Fund strengthens efforts to ensure equality for our diverse community and that it is protected from discrimination.

In addition, Our Fund supports four free-standing initiatives in partnership with local and national partners:

Protect Our Elders: A partnership between Our Fund, SAGE USA and local agencies to deliver cultural sensitivity training to South Florida senior care facilities and senior care professionals, ensuring that services to and care required by LGBT elders is welcoming and free from discrimination.

Albert LaMorges Performing Arts Internship Fund: Provides annual stipends to aspiring LGBT students in Music and Theater Arts participating in the organizations and productions of Island City Stage and the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida.

Homeless LGBTQ Youth Initiative: A collaborative effort with Our Fund, SunServe and The Pride Center to provide resources to homeless or at-risk LGBTQ youth and assist them with job employment, education and/or housing support.

Contigo Fund: In the wake of the tragic event that occurred at Pulse nightclub in Orlando targeting LGBTQ people of color, the Contigo Fund is an effort to strengthen and network existing agencies while identifying and supporting grassroots efforts that intersect and advance Latinx and LGBTQ causes in Central Florida.
