Building political power for the LGBTQ community is vitally important as we work to overturn laws that target our community.

That’s why we’re excited to announce #QueertheVote, a new round of Southern Equality Fund grants.

We’ll be making grants of up to $500 to support grassroots efforts to get folks registered to vote and to the polls. And anyone in North Carolina who receives a grant is eligible to receive training from Democracy NC.

The grant cycle opens right now and will run through October 6. You can apply as an individual or a group and 501c(3) status is not required to receive a grant. 

Registration and turnout efforts funded through #QueertheVote must be in compliance with the IRS guidelines for 501(c)3 organizations, meaning grantees may NOT directly or indirectly tell people how to vote or for whom to vote, or coordinate with candidates for office or political parties.  Click here to learn more about permissable election activities for 501(c)3 public charities.
