The GALE Fund is actively planning community building and fund raising events to support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning community and their allies on Cape Cod and the Islands. We raise money to give it away, sponsoring an annual grants program each year. Since our inception in 1998 we have raised and given away over $200,000 to support programs that improve the lives of LGBTQ individuals and their families. We have had a focus on youth, supporting CIGSYA and the Barnstable County Human Rights Academy several times, and are currently trying to encourage development of grant proposals from Gay Straight Alliances in Cape and Island schools. We have also had a focus on LGBTQ seniors, a growing population facing new challenges as their needs for health care and social services change. Please join us in meeting the needs of our community.
