Four times each year, Pride Foundation Australia offers up to $500 in funding to five individuals, organisations and communities working on projects that directly benefit the LGBTIQA+ community, who would otherwise be limited by the constraints of other funding programs.
We’re thrilled to announce the recipients for the September 2019 Small Grants!
Rainbow Disability SA
Rainbow Disability will invest in streaming equipment and accessible venue hire to ensure that their support group for LGBT+ people with disabilities is accessible to everyone looking for community support, education, and advocacy.
Wendybird are holding an event to thank volunteers and supporters and celebrate 5 years of creating a safe place for LGBTIQA+ people. They are ensuring it is accessible to everyone regardless of mobility and/or financial situation.
Advance Diversity Services
Advance Diversity Services plan to print more copies of their Multicultural LGBTQIA+ Support Directory, which was made in partnership with Kogarah Community Services, Georges River Council and 2 Connect Youth and Community.
As You Are Group, Headspace Newcastle
As You Are Group is a social and support group for LGBTQIA+ youth aged 14-21 years. They have designed a card game designed by youth based on the LGBTQIA+ acronym to educate people about the diverse communities that are covered in the acronym as well as their associated flags. The cards will also detail and demystify the use of pronouns.
Tadc Quirke Conference Attendance
Tadc Quirke is a member of both disability and LGBTIQA+ communities, and plans to attend the 2020 Better Together conference in Melbourne. The conference aims to explore current issues facing the LGBTIQ+ movement, bringing together voices from the disability community, as well as multicultural and multi-faith communities.
Our next round of small grants will be in December, so make sure to keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter for announcements and details.
