Texas Pride Impact Funds is the community foundation for the LGBTQ+ people of Texas. Very few foundations will fund LGBTQ+ nonprofits and programs, therefore, we must support a wide variety of community needs. Please join us in our work to lift up community organizations and their leaders, especially those who are transgender and/or persons of color. Please join us to mobilize donors and funders, inspire giving, and actively secure our community's future for generations to come.
Our 2021 Community Grants Program continues to recognize organizations and projects that address the current and direct needs of communities while also seeking to correct the systemic injustices that unfairly burden people living within these identities and at their intersections. On Saturday, October 9 the TPIF Board of Directors approved the recommendations of our Grant Action Group and we proudly present this year’s 21 grant recipients.
Preview: 2022 Grant Programs
We proudly announce our ViiV Healthcare selection as a 2022-24 Amp Grant Program Lead. Through this funding, we will operate micro-granting, capacity-building, and network-building programs to grassroots organizations in Texas that are leading outreach and engagement efforts to people living with or vulnerable to HIV. Our program, ImpactTXGR (Impact Texas Grant), will seek and fund organizations serving our target populations: individuals from the transgender community and MSM (gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men), primarily Black and Latinx populations most vulnerable to HIV and the stigma associated with it, and who face the steepest barriers to obtaining treatment. Community-based organizations working in the areas of Advocacy for Persons Living with HIV (PLWH) and Linkage and Engagement to Care will have the opportunity to receive general operating support and technical assistance through three consecutive one-year grants.
The ImpactTXGR Program will compliment our annual Community Grants. Follow our website and ENewsletter over the next several months for further details on both programs and watch for our Request For Proposal (RFP) announcements late Q1 2022.

#BlackLivesMatter and Racial Justice
Since our inception, TPIF has prioritized intersectional funding and community building, however current events require unwavering dedication to the eradication of racism and white supremacy now and for all generations to come. Our board signs with hundreds of organization on two open letters; Combat Racial Violence and Calling for Transformational Change in Policing. Together we commit action against racism, racial violence and police ineptitude in response to a litany of horrific incidents against Black Americans.
