The Plus Projec+, a new initiative created with the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, is raising awareness and funding for organizations providing services for Tampa Bay’s LGBTQ+ community.
This new fund is dedicated to filling gaps and unmet needs, and helping pool resources to support specific organizational needs. The Plus Projec+ will:
– Strengthen support for LGBTQ+ nonprofits.
– Leverage charitable dollars around LGBTQ+ needs.
– Underscore our region as an LGBTQ+ friendly place to live, work and play.
The Plus Projec+ is still in the fundraising stage, but nearly $100,000 is already committed, with grants expected to be awarded in 2019.
