At The Heart of the Matter We Are Fundamentally Connected By Our Pursuit of Freedom.
Although ImpactOUT is an emerging program, we believe in "the power of now," not "later," and have therefore earmarked a small amount of funding to bestow $250 grants to other emerging programs. This keeps the "pay it forward" concept moving and helps support the work being done in areas that are presently outside of our reach.
We are invested in projects, resources, workshops, campaigns, or other endeavors that create impact in the following areas:
1). Journalism projects that gives truth to power for LGBTQI+ communities.
2). Creative projects through literature or the arts that addresses an issue.
3). Educational projects to promote cultural awareness, inclusivity, diplomacy and pluralism.
4) . Activism through projects or events to promote LGBTQI+ social justice in various areas.
The application for the grant closed on May 1, 2018. We had a number of stellar applicants and will be announcing those selected in September 2018.
