We are leaders advocates allies bold determined

Investing in bold leaders & thriving LGBTQIA communities for over 30 years

PFund Foundation was started in 1987 in response to the AIDS crisis; as people in the LGBTQ community experienced isolation, stigma and ignorance, our community came together to provide for itself and ensure such obstacles could be confronted.

We recognize that eradicating homophobia and transphobia is work that requires significant courage, energy, tenacity and resources. As the regional LGBTQ grantmaker in the upper Midwest, PFund Foundation inspires donors and catalyzes communities to invest in lasting change.

PFund Foundation is proud to support LGBTQ and allied activists, organizers, practitioners, artists, educators and communities. We invest in LGBTQ people across the lifespan in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Equal opportunity and non-discrimination policy: PFund Foundation practices a policy of non-discrimination in the recruitment and selection of employees, volunteers, or scholarship recipients. PFund Foundation will not exclude any person from participation in, nor deny the benefits of its programs, to any person on account of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, disability, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, and familial status; [per state law] PFund Foundation will comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding handicap/disability discrimination and accommodation.
