Grant Writer Request #07132020C

Primary Purpose:
Our organization provides support to individuals whose spouse, partner, girlfriend or boyfriend is gay, lesbian, bisexual or a transgender person since 1986. While "coming out" is celebrated, sometimes the straight spouses' or partners' needs are misunderstood or neglected. Our orginazation reaches out to these individuals and provides them support, understanding, and resources. The organization provides a safe place for individuals to connect with other individuals who have had or are having similar experiences in face-to-face and virtual support groups. Our orginazation provides online resources, personal stories, videos, podcasts, recommended reading, and frequently asked questions (FAQs). We build bridges to the LGBTQ communities in an effort to foster a better understanding of the impact on individuals and families when a person comes out. Our vision is that one day, we will no longer be needed.

With the growth of social media, our orginazation has an opportunity to expand its reach. The social media has certain basic requirements to be competitive. In order to leverage these communications, we need to up our fundraising game and reach out to other sources of support.

We have limited experience in the area and seek professional help to raise the funds necessary to sustain the organization and help it grow.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
There are a number of programs in need of support: 1) Total Makeover of our online presence to include a new web site and possible re-branding; 2)Podcasts - each month we produce a series of podcasts on topics help to our clients. 3)Events - in order to fulfill our vision of Building Bridges we require funding to attend various events to participate with the LGBTQ communities. 4)General Support - at the present time ALL of our headquarters staff volunteer and many of the necessary positions needed to achieve our vision go unfilled. And 5) bringing online and in-house grant writing process.
