Gay & Lesbian Fund | Committed to Colorado

Because nonprofit organizations often need much more than financial support, the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado offers additional resources.

For example, did you know that we offer free meeting space to nonprofit organizations at no charge? It’s true. In 2010, 416 organizations held more than 564 meetings and events in our free meeting spaces, hosting more than 16,583 people.

We also have toolkits for employers looking to learn more about what it means to be a diverse and inclusive workplace. Happy and inclusive workplaces don’t just create themselves, they take thoughtful planning and work.

And last, but certainly not least, we provide helpful links to other nonprofit resources, as well as Colorado’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organizations.

If you have additional ideas for our resources section, please let us know.

Welcome to the website for the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado

We’d like to update you on some important news.

In 2012, we announced we would take a break from all new Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado grantmaking to undergo a strategic reevaluation. As of December 2012, we are nearing the end of this reevaluation period and a focused branding evaluation.

Due to exciting changes in the fund’s grant program areas, the content available on this website is now outdated. We will be closing this website and incorporating Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado updates into the Gill Foundation’s website by April 2014.

Going forward, the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado will now encompass all previously-existing Colorado programs and grants of the Gill Foundation, as well as a new program area in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.* The foundation’s six Colorado program areas that will be known as Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado grants are:

Five previously existing and well-defined grant program areas of Gill Foundation:

  • Colorado safe and inclusive schools that prevent bullying and harassment
  • Colorado progressive civic engagement and communications grants
  • Colorado public broadcasting grants
  • Colorado HIV services
  • Colorado lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) services and advocacy

One new grant program area:

  • Colorado science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education

* Our new STEM strategy will be refined over the course of the next 18 months.

PLEASE NOTE: We will not be accepting any unsolicited letters of interest or grant applications.

We are excited for this next chapter with the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado and believe that we can have an even greater impact in building a better Colorado together. Please check the Gill Foundation’s website in late 2013 for any grantmaking updates:
