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 Program
Our Community Grants Program RFP will be released March 15; Application Deadline is May 31 and Awards announced this September. For funding priorities follow updates here and sign up for our newsletter.
Despite the challenges of last year, TPIF put over $206,000 to work in LGBTQ+ communities across Texas. In April, grants were awarded as an immediate response to COVID-19 through a streamlined process to twenty-six nonprofits who most needed immediate funding. In September grants were awarded in partnership with Equality Texas to advance social justice work of community partners at the intersection of racial equity and LGBTQ+ identities; meet the sixteen QTCF recipients.

#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.
