Largest grant allocations in our 21-year history

Since 1999, Diversity Richmond has provided financial support to countless numbers of LGBTQ and LGBTQ-friendly organizations. We have distributed over $1.1 Million, this not including our clothing, food, utility, medical and housing assistance to those in need.

Due to community support, we are pleased to offer more funding this year than ever before. This grant cycle offers not only non-profits, but individuals the opportunity for funding. The information included in this newsletter addresses the criteria and application process.

If you, as an individual, have an idea for a project that will address social injustice and benefit the LGBTQ community, we encourage you to apply. Please note that some of the individual applications require a partnership with a nonprofit, but not all.

Our local community is filled with organizations and individuals that are working every day to bring about a society where all are treated fairly and granted opportunities to excel and lead. Diversity Richmond is excited to be a part of that community.

None of our good work would be possible if not for the support of our volunteers and donors. Thank you for joining our efforts to bring about good, positive changes.
