When National Funders Go Local: Leveraging LGBT Community Centers

Thursday, March 31st · 2:00pm — 3:30pm

Community centers, which are some of the oldest organizations in the LGBT movement, provide an array services to LGBT people: social/recreational, health, job training and support for community building/organizing. This session highlights approaches that two funders have used to partner with centers to meaningfully impact the lived experience of queer people, particularly in non-coastal areas, and explores lessons learned when national funders partner locally.
