The Gamma Mu Foundation awards financial support to members of the LGBT community who demonstrate financial need and the desire to pursue additional training through academic or vocational education.
The Foundation’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of the LGBT community, primarily in rural and other under-served populations of the United States.
The Foundation’s vision is the creation of an environment that promotes health, acceptance, and pride in the LGBT community and a more accepting and inclusive environment for people regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Grants and scholarships are awarded annually based on a formal online application and Board of Directors approval process. Only organizations and individuals in the United States are eligible for Gamma Mu Foundation financial assistance. All organizations qualifying for Gamma Mu Foundation assistance must qualify as 501(c)(3) charitable organizations as defined by the Internal Revenue Service. The Foundation will not award grants for more than three consecutive grants cycles. If an organization has received three consecutive grants, it will be required to wait for one year prior to re-applying for funding. With the exception of scholarships, Gamma Mu Foundation does not make financial assistance grants to individuals.
