Supporting the Cape and Islands LGBTQ Community
About the GALE Fund
The Gay and Lesbian Equity Fund (GALE Fund) is concerned with the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning population of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.  We were established in 1998 within the Cape Cod Foundation (then the Community Foundation of Cape Cod) with a grant from the National Gay and Lesbian Funding Partnership.  Our mission is to raise funds to distribute to other groups or agencies in support of specific projects to improve the lives of our constintuency.

Since 1998, the Gale Fund has raised and distributed more than $224,000 in grant monies to support initiatives that address unmet needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning individuals.  These initiatives generally fall into one or more of the following categories:
•    Improved access to health care, and education of health care providers
•    Protecting civil rights
•    Support services for youth as they accept their emerging sexual orientation
•    Promoting understanding of the LGBTQ community among the heterosexual community
•    Ending hate crimes and violence
•    Fighting discrimination against aging
LGBTQ individuals
•    Building relationships among isolated
LGBTQ groups

The GALE Fund goal is to provide significant on-going funding for worthy projects through annual fund-raising and through building an endowment.  Our vision is to enable the creation of a tolerant and supportive culture for the full population of Cape Cod and the Islands, regardless of sexual orientation.
