The L-FUND, A Lesbian Philanthropic Group, founded in 2012, serving Lesbians in financial need.


The L-Fund assists Lesbians in the Coachella Valley to resolve short-term financial crises, unlike traditional social service or financial aid agencies that deal with long-term assistance. 

The L-Fund's established reserve account often allows them to respond to a request within 24 to 48 hours. "This is the only Lesbian organization in the valley to provide immediate financial relief in an emergency situation," says L-Fund's President, Barbara Carpenter. The emotional outpouring from gift recipients creates a sense of community that inspires the Core Group, co-founders and president to do more.

The L-Fund is a compassionate, philanthropic nonprofit organization. For more information about the L-Fund, its guidelines for giving, or to make donations, visit their website www.L-Fund.org.
