Who We Are

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer (LGBTQ+) Alliance Fund, a fund of the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, is pleased to launch its 2022 grant application and is announcing a two-year funding commitment for prospective grantees. Applications open on Monday, January 10th, 2022, and will be accepted through February 4th, 2022, at 5:00 pm MST.

Since 1999, the LGBTQ+ Alliance Fund has awarded $1,025,957 to 72 organizations in support of Southern Arizona’s LGBTQ+ programs and initiatives. This year, the fund is transitioning to multi-year funding for the first time in the organization’s history.

For more information, please contact David Gardner, Program Manager, Community Investments at dgardner@cfsaz.org.

Support from the Alliance Fund has made it possible for MOCA Tucson to continue offering ‘School of Drag,’ an intergenerational gender performance workshop series. These workshops provide an outlet for exploring gender expression, community-building across generations within the LGBTQIA+ community, and skill-building through performance art.”

With support from the LGBTQ+ Alliance Fund, Southern Arizona Senior Pride has been given the opportunity to grow toward sustainability as we provide critical social, cultural, and well-being services. The Alliance Fund has given generous funding, recognition, and support for LGBTQI+ older adults, our community’s treasured activists, historians, wise ones, and friends.
