Free Meeting Space

The Gay & Lesbian Fund offers meeting space to nonprofit organizations at no charge.

In 2010 alone, we hosted 16,583 people at 564 events. Organizations that utilized our meeting space ranged from the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR) and Colorado State University to the El Paso & Teller Counties Alliance for Drug Endangered Children, the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival, and the local chapter for the Alzheimer’s Association.

We are proud to have inspired and supported thousands of hours of volunteer work by providing free meeting and event space for use by local nonprofits. Demand has dramatically increased over the last few years, signaling an ever-growing need for resources that nonprofits can leverage to serve Colorado’s communities.

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Due to exciting changes in the fund’s grant program areas, the content available on this website is now outdated.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:
