Philanthrofund Foundation traces its roots back to 1987, when four friends joined together to create a modest fund of $2,000 aimed at supporting and developing their LGBT community.
Philanthrofund's core fund has grown substantially, and the non-profit organization remains true to its key goals of strengthening and celebrating LGBT communities.
PFund has grown to become a vibrant and vital community foundation, thanks to support over the years from thousands of individual donors and hundreds of volunteers. The foundation now annually awards thousands of dollars in grants and scholarships to LGBT-related individuals and organizations throughout the Upper Midwest – in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
PFund's vision is to be a catalyst in building communities where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are celebrated and live free from discrimination, violence, invisibility and isolation.
