Dear Friends of the Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Greater, Inc.,
Today, the Board takes a bold step for the future of our organization by becoming a "virtual" on-line Center, engaging in grant making to local GLBTQ groups, and shuttering its physical location in Northside.
We are a private foundation; our primary funding source remains the ever popular Pride Night at Kings Island (date to be announced for 2014). After the physical premises close on November 9, 2013, please continue to visit www.cincyglbt.com for updates.
Our first grant for the 2014 is to the Cincinnati Pride (www.cincinnatpride.org) for $5,000.00. The Center makes this grant to double the amount of time (two months) and the double the number of street banners (32) in downtown Cincinnati to promote Cincinnati Gay Pride on May 31, 2014 and Pride Month June 2014. A process with guidelines will be published online for The Center to consider your grant request early next year.
We must evolve with the times. It is our desire to continue supporting the local communities by returning even more value through this change.
Here’s a recap of our vision:
We will continue:
Maintaining and enhancing our web site at
We will develop/announce:
An application process and guidelines in the new year for your group/organization to apply for funding from the Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Greater Cincinnati.
Determine a public location for our annual meeting.
Develop the best way to enlist volunteers to continue to support our functions and develop new leadership.
We are changing to adapt to the current situation and make our practices consistent with the actual utilization of our resources all while returning more value to the communities that access us!
