Small Grants Fund

2019 Application Period is NOW OPEN

Application Deadline is March 31, 2019

The GLIFAA Fund provides a mechanism to reimburse GLIFAA post representatives for expenses incurred in support of host- country LGBT+ advocacy organizations or events.  Grants will be issued subject to the following guidelines:

  1. Eligibility: Grants will only be issued to GLIFAA post representatives who are current members of GLIFAA up to date on dues payment. If a non-GLIFAA member wishes to support a local LGBT-focused event or organization, the non-GLIFAA member must seek funding through the resident GLIFAA post representative.  GLIFAA Post Representative positions may be held by most personnel at Post.  For more information on post representatives, please see
  2. Amount: Each post may receive up to $500 in small grants funding per calendar year. The GLIFAA Board will set-aside $2,500 of the 2018-2019 budget to support these grants; this amount may be revised in subsequent years.
  3. Qualifying Activities: Examples of requests that could qualify for funding include purchasing equipment or supplies for a local NGO-sponsored event, venue rentals, publication costs, or requests related to Post employee’s participation in an LGBT+ Pride or other LGBT+-related event. Priority will be given to requests that are innovative, are likely to have the greatest impact in the host country, and for those requests that are unlikely to be supported by funds available for another source.  GLIFAA is unlikely to fund those requests which are repeats of previous years, are unsustainable, or which would undermine Post priorities or GLIFAA’s mission in any way.
