Racial and economic equity within the LGTB community are the over-arching principles which guide the grantmaking agenda of the foundation. The foundation's focus will be on three populations of low or no income: (1) Transgender communities of color; (2) LGTBQ youth of color, ages 24 and under; and (3) LGTB seniors of color aged 60 and over.Priority will be given to those organizations and programs that serve a minimum of 50 percent LGTBQ people of color; and who can demonstrate that the composition of the organization's board and staff strives to reflect these communities in similar proportion. The foundation will also consider funding programs of organizations not focused exclusively on the LGTB community if the number of LGTBQ clients of color served by the program is at least 50 percent.
