Microgrants for Young Women

The Stonewall Community Foundation is accepting applications for its Bee's Fund Microgrants program. Grants ranging up to $650 will be awarded to help young women who have lost family support because of their sexual orientation or gender identity to become self-sufficient. Expenses that may be covered by a microgrant include but are not limited to GED tutoring or classes; uniforms needed for work; undergraduate college application fees; vocational training, licensing, and testing fees; domestic needs such as bedding or rental security deposits; and fees associated with securing a legal name change or gender-affirming ID. To be eligible, applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 25, reside in the United States, and identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or gender nonconforming.
