Open Door Fund Request for Proposals

The Open Door Fund, a permanent endowment of Community Foundation Boulder County, supports the Boulder County community by raising money and distributing grants for programs that enhance the lives of LGBTQ+ people and their allies. 

While Open Door Fund accepts proposals from a variety of organizations, we first prioritize applications from organizations that are primarily LGBTQ-focused, and LGBTQ+ led, and then consider applications from other organizations seeking funding for LGBTQ+ serving projects and programs. We will only consider requests for general operating support from organizations that primarily serve the LGBTQ+ community. Open Door Fund is interested in supporting new and emerging ideas, and interesting collaborations, especially those that contribute to systemic change.

This year's Open Door Fund grant cycle will be divided into two separate processes: organizations with budgets less than $100K will be considered in one grantmaking process, and organizations with budgets more than $100K will be considered in a separate grantmaking process. Please be certain to apply for the appropriate process in the online grants system.
