LGBTQ Fund of Mississippi – The Community Foundation for MS

The LGBTQ Fund of Mississippi envisions a state where all LGBTQ Mississippians live safely, openly and without isolation, prejudice, and discrimination.

Why We Exist:

As the first and only grantmaking fund in the state focused on supporting organizations that improve quality of life for LGBTQ Mississippians, the Fund works as a pipeline that fuels and enhances the work of LGBTQ-focused organizations by the professional stewardship of funds and other resources from outside donors.


The Fund will join with other organizations across the state to support programs and policies that allow LGBTQ Mississippians to realize the full liberties, opportunities and possibilities promised to all citizens.

Inspiring LGBTQ Public Discussion

The LGBTQ Fund of Mississippi is also a sponsor of the LGBTQ Author’s Panel at the Mississippi Book Festival that will be held August 21, 2021 at the Mississippi State Capitol building in Jackson. In addition to the panel, look for book signings and on-site booksellers. Learn more at https://msbookfestival.com.

“Continuing this work is vital to making Mississippi a more welcoming place where all of our own citizens can be free to prosper. We’re proud to be able to support these fantastic organizations from across the state, and we look forward to future funding rounds!” said Sammy Moon, founding donor at the LGBTQ Fund.

Tax-deductible gifts to the LGBTQ Fund of Mississippi can be made through the website at or mailed to P.O. Box 55903, Jackson, MS 39296.
