Funding Available to Support Vermont’s LGBTQ Communities

Funding is now available for new or existing projects, programs, and organizations that serve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) communities in Vermont through the Samara Fund at the Vermont Community Foundation. The Samara Fund’s mission is to help create vibrant Vermont LGBTQ communities and ensure that LGBTQ Vermonters are connected, healthy, appreciated, safe, and empowered.

This year, the Samara Fund will accept applications for projects or organizations that serve critical needs within LGBTQ communities or support HIV/AIDS services or prevention at the grassroots level. Non LGBTQ identified organizations are encouraged to seek support for projects that directly serve Vermont’s LGBTQ communities. Nonprofits may apply at any time for up to $3,500; applications will be accepted through 5 p.m. Thursday, March 21, 2019.
