More About Us
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Straight Alliance Fund envisions a community where LGBTQ individuals are treated equally and are free from fear and discrimination. The We connect donors with projects that benefit the LGBT community in Southern Arizona, through annual competitive grant rounds. The Fund provides donors with a way to channel their charitable investments into efforts that are likely to affect the issues they're most concerned with.
The Alliance Fund was created in 1999 by the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona in partnership with the National Lesbian and Gay Community Funding Partnership. The Alliance Fund addresses a chronic pattern of under-funding of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender programs and supports efforts to address these issues through philanthropy and endowment building. Since its inception, the Fund has awarded more than 100 grants to more than 40 different organizations totaling over a half-million dollars.

"This year we received a wonderful grant from the Alliance Fund. This was the first funding we received for our 3rd annual Camp Born This Way. It gave us a wonderful boost and confidence hat awe could actually make this camp have again. From this grant we were able to receive another grant from a national organization. We are incredibly grateful to the Alliance Fund because we would not have the impact in the community without this grant."-Diana Wilson, Camp Born This way
