ABOUT THE APPLICATION PROCESS
wayOUT believes that LGBTQ+ youth should feel safe being who they really are, wherever they are, and we need your help to make this happen. Through investing in organizations that provide life-saving services, we want to change what it means to grow up as a gender and sexual minority in America.
Our grant recipients are critical to the safety and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ youth in the U.S. They serve on the front lines and work directly in their communities as change agents.
Here’s what we’re looking for in a partner organization:
U.S.-based organization that serves youth (aged 11-25 years) from sexual and/or gender minorities
Youth served are experiencing multiple forms of oppression; e.g., marginalization based on both economic status and sexual identity
Youth served are geographically distant from life-saving resources and located in state or locality with higher levels of intolerance or hostility toward LGBTQ+ people
Services focus on resolving critical issues faced by LGBTQ+ youth in their communities; e.g., suicide prevention, mental health programming, transgender support and services, homelessness, LGBTQ+ competent healthcare, HIV/AIDS services, etc.
Established access to funding but with programmatic funding needs
Organization or leader with track record of proven success
Services have a measurable impact
