Bee's Fund Microgrants
We are proud to offer grants that benefit LGBTQ individuals who have an express need for support. These microgrants, as we call them, range from $25 to $650, with some flexibility depending on the request. Right now, microgrants are made exclusively through the Bee Winkler Weinstein Fund and are awarded to help young women that have lost family support because of their sexual orientation or gender identity in becoming self-sufficient. Applicants must be between 18 and 25 years old, reside in the United States, and identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or gender nonconforming.
Expenses that may be covered by a microgrant include, but are not limited to:
- GED tutoring or classes
- Uniforms necessary for work
- Undergraduate college application fees
- Vocational training, licensing, and testing fees
- Domestic needs, such as bedding or rental security deposits
- Securing legal name changes or gender-affirming IDs
Download the application. Applicants are required to include a statement that tells us a bit about herself and and how these funds will help her grow and become self-sufficient. Please also note: when submitting, attach a copy of any written estimates, invoices, or promotional materials that verify expenses noted in the request for funding.
