The momentum to fund the Stonewall Fund at the University of South Florida has been inspiring! The fund balance has exceeded $12,500 a little more than half a year from the establishment of USF’s Stonewall Fund (including matching funds provided by the Stonewall Fund Incorporated). This brings the fund more than halfway towards the $25,000 endowment minima when the funds can be invested and start generating resources for grants to USF LGBTQ+ youth-in-need. Thank you to all that have contributed to date. To help us reach the endowment minima, make your contribution to USF at this link and take advantage of the Stonewall Fund’s matching funds.
The Stonewall Fund Inc. is pleased to announce the establishment of a Stonewall Fund at the University of South Florida (USF). The Stonewall Fund has committed to matching donations to the USF Stonewall Fund for the next five years, up to $25,000. Please make your contribution today to help support LGBTQ youth that have lost the financial support of their families when coming out or being outed.

The first Stonewall Fund established at Alfred University has met the endowment minima of $25,000 with a combination of private donations and matching funds. This means the fund will begin accruing interest and funds will become available to support LGBTQ+ youth-at-risk. Thank you to everyone that contributed and made this happen. The overall goal for the fund is $50,000 and donations are still being matched by our founders.
