Each day, as The LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland (The Center) fulfills its mission to enrich the lives of the diverse LGBTQ+ community through advocacy, support, education and celebration, dollars designated for our long-term needs are growing quietly in a fund that helps secure our future. With the generosity of donors and the foresight of our board and leadership team, the Facility Endowment Fund was established with the Cleveland Foundation in 2014 to help ensure long-term stability for The Center’s new facility. With oversight from our board, the Cleveland Foundation stewards our fund and ensures that each dollar multiplies over time to generate revenues earmarked for The Center’s facilities and operations. The fund also provides peace of mind for our donors who recognize that The Center and the majority of our programs operate with the goal of sustainability.
The Center believes in the strong community partnership provided by a fund at the Cleveland Foundation. Look for our name in Cleveland Foundation outreach materials and follow #CLEfund on social media to learn more about how organizational funds like ours are helping Greater Cleveland prepare for the future.
