Allen Foundation Mission
The Allen Foundation recognizes the explicit and implicit challenges of acceptance for high school-aged LGBTQ+ students. As a result, the foundation's purpose is to fund the Allen Book Award Scholarship. This scholarship seeks to identify and support Greater Hartford area students interested in LGBTQ+ issues and the arts and who have a passion for social justice in their higher education studies. We believe a more just, pluralistic democratic society includes students empowered to write wrongs.
