What does this all mean? Essentially, our LGBTQ+ friends, neighbors, and community members are less likely to finish college, less likely to earn a living wage, and less likely to achieve their dreams than their cisgender and straight peers.
At the Rainbow Chamber Foundation, we want to see every member of our Sacramento-area LGBTQ+ community thrive!
Since 2008, the Foundation has proudly awarded more than 120 scholarships and has contributed more than $375,000 to fund college and vocational education scholarships for LGBTQ and LGBT-supportive youth and support non-profit organizations, including the Sacramento Gay & Lesbian Center, National Suicide Prevention Program Trevor Project, GSA Network, Transgender Law Center, Sacramento International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (SIGLFF), and the Equality California Institute. The Foundation focuses most of its giving on scholarships and organizations that help LGBTQ youth.
Your donation today will help dozens of students in the coming year pay for books, tuition, fees, school supplies, and living expenses. In addition to the actual financial investment, many of our scholarship recipients tell us that knowing the community is rallying behind them gives them strength to continue with their studies when times get hard.
Together, we can help our LGBTQ+ students make the grade and achieve their dreams!
The Rainbow Chamber Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2007, with the mission to promote mentoring, guidance, and education, and to support programs that improve the quality of life of the LGBTQ community.
