Colin Higgins Foundation Offers Grants for HIV/AIDS Programs and to Combat Homophobia
Deadline: July 1, 2005 (Letters of Inquiry)

Through its grantmaking activities, the Colin Higgins Foundation (<a href=""></a>) supports organizations that focus on the following:

Responding to the HIV/AIDS pandemic by supporting innovative organizations and programs in the areas of HIV/AIDS prevention, education, and care for people infected, affected, and at risk for HIV/AIDS. This includes strategies such as advocacy, harm reduction, needle exchange, comprehensive sexuality education, and direct services to people living with HIV/AIDS.

Empowering lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) peoples by supporting community-based organizations that foster leadership in these communities and combat homophobia. The foundation particularly encourages efforts that seek to bring about institutional change in the legal, political, economic, or cultural structures that impact LGBT people, and that link the LGBT communities to other social justice movements.

The foundation focuses its support on organizations and projects that work with youth; rural and reservation communities; communities of color; transgender communities; and low-income communities.

Until further notice, the Colin Higgins Foundation will not accept Letters of Inquiry for independent film and video projects, including research, production, and distribution. While the foundation has considered projects for outreach and education in the past, it will not consider them for this cycle.

The 2005 cycle for Letters of Inquiry will open May 1, 2005. Visit the foundation’s Web site for complete program information and application procedures.
