About Arts & Culture
The Gay & Lesbian Fund supports organizations that elevate the arts and celebrate cultural diversity because we love the way film, literature, performances, and community festivals inspire people to think and feel.
We invested $480,600 in 51 Colorado nonprofit organizations in our Arts & Culture program area in 2010. Nonprofits we supported ranged from the Children’s Museum of Denver and the Cortez Cultural Center to the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra and the Pueblo Performing Arts Guild.
The story above highlights just one of our 2010 Arts & Culture grantees, the Spirituals Project. Located on the University of Denver’s campus, this Colorado nonprofit’s mission is to preserve and revitalize the music and teachings of hundreds of sacred songs called “spirituals.” The spirituals first sung by African slaves in America in the 18th and 19th centuries were, are, and will continue to be, a source of healing, comfort, and inspiration for all people.
