L-FUND GRANTS
AID IN CRISES AND GETTING OVER HURDLES

Since 2012, The L-Fund has provided emergency financial assistance to cis and trans lesbians in crisis across the Coachella Valley and surrounding areas. Wanting to help beyond emergencies, our programs have expanded to include education assistance, health and wellness aid, and grants for lesbian artists. Founded by lesbians for lesbians and the only organization of its kind in the country, we work closely with the community at large to improve the lives of our sisters. Find out more about us.

 

Mission Statement
The mission statement of the L-Fund is to empower cis and trans lesbians through financial crisis assistance, grants for education, the arts and health and wellness programs.

Vision Statement
The L-Fund envisions a future of an inclusive and diverse community in which lesbians are provided a reliable resource for financial assistance, social engagement, and programs that enrich the lives of lesbians.

MEET SOME OF OUR RECENT GRANT RECIPIENTS!

Roselyn Gonzalez
Recently we purchased a laptop for Roselyn and helped her with the purchase of her school books. She is a graduate of Palm Springs High School who is attending University of California at San Diego in the Fall. Another recipient had a simple request – she needed GED prep books and headphones to help her be able to study in some peace and quiet, We were happy to oblige!

We were thrilled to grant $1,200 to Lesbian Artists of the Desert (LAOD) to help pay for a year’s worth of meeting space rental at CREATE Center for the Arts in Palm Desert, plus monies for two art show and cost of Honoraria guest speakers. Their art will be on display at our Afternoon of the Arts event on October 16th!

Debra I Moore Grant for the Arts

We were excited to help an exuberant Carolina Romero
who needed assistance with a 3-day certification program being held in Texas that would allow her to apply for a promotion in her field of work – engineering. The L-Fund grant is for $2,350 and pays for her airfare, hotel, certification course and the purchase of a new laptop she desperately needed to do her work. The L-Fund and Carolina were also recently featured on KESQ News!
