Stonewall Community Foundation is now accepting proposals for their 2021 Stonewall Quarter Share Grant Cycle. This cycle backs small (budget size of $500K or less) organizations that provide direct services to immigrants and refugees; homeless or housing insecure folks; incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people; or other populations disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.
Stonewall grants strengthen the community. They invest in dynamic organizations, projects, and leaders that elevate LGBTQ people and cultural contributions, advance our rights, and promote our wellness, safety, and liberation.
Direct services can include organizations that provide food; shelter; clothing and hygiene kits; STI testing, sexual health services, other healthcare; legal services; mutual aid/cash assistance; mental health services, support groups, mentoring, or case management; education and career services; referrals and connections to resources
- One organization will be awarded a grant of $20,000 this December.
Organizations—including current and past Stonewall Community Foundation grant recipients—are eligible to apply if they meet all of the following criteria:
- Their current or most recent budget was $500,000 or less;
- They provide direct services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, the majority of whom are (or with a significant focus on) immigrants, refugees, homeless, housing insecure, incarcerated, or formerly incarcerated, or other populations disproportionately impacted by the pandemic;
- They focus primarily on one, some, or all of the five boroughs of New York City; and
- They have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status as evidenced by an IRS-issued determination letter; or a formal written sponsorship agreement with a fiscal agent that has such status.
