FLGBTQI + ADAM Queer Youth Initiative Request for Matching Grant Proposals Available

The ADAM Queer Youth Initiative and Funders for LGBTQ Issues are partnering on a matching grants program to support foundations that serve or address the needs of LGBTQ youth and involve youth in grantmaking decisions. Currently in its third round of funding, the FLGBTQI + ADAM Queer Youth Initiative invites applications that prioritize grantmaking to LGBTQ youth-serving organizations and projects that:

  • have youth involvement in the organizing and governance of the organization;
  • serve LGBTQ youth of color, young women, transgender and gender non-conforming youth, low-income youth, and projects serving rural areas;
  • work for systemic social change and demonstrate an understanding of the interconnections of issues and identities (gender, sexual orientation, race, etc.).
Proposals are due April 14, 2014 and applicants will be notified of final decisions by May 16, 2014.
