COVID-19 assistance

The Leonard-Litz Foundation recognizes the devastating impact that COVID-19 has had on the LGBTQ+ community, which has suffered a disproportionate rate of economic upheaval, unemployment and under-employment, and housing instability. We have established a $250,000 COVID emergency fund to provide relief to those in the LGBTQ+ community who are struggling as a result of the pandemic. We invite nonprofits in the Northeast U.S. that are addressing the unique challenges this public health crisis poses to our community to apply for $15,000 grants from this fund.

Apply for a COVID-19 grant 

Please note that organizations are welcome to apply for separate grants from both the COVID emergency fund and the general Leonard-Litz Foundation.
