Stonewall Community Foundation
Stonewall Community Foundation is the only public foundation focused on the needs of New York’s diverse LGBTQ community. They also provide scholarships and grants to individuals.
THE BEE WINKLER WEINSTEIN FUND (BEE’S FUND) -- “Bee’s Fund” was created in honor of Bee Winkler Weinstein by her daughter, Dava Weinstein, and Dava’s partner, Dorothy Calvani, the Fund’s lead donors. While not a traditional scholarship, the Fund benefits young women whose own families have withdrawn emotional and often financial support because of their sexual and/or gender identity. Grants of various sizes are made to support young women in taking steps toward becoming self-sufficient in their own lives.
Expenses that may be covered by a Bee’s Fund grant include:
- GED tutoring
- Work uniforms
- Legal name changes
- College application fees
- Licensing and testing fees
- Domestic needs, such as bedding or rental security deposits
- For vocational/technical training: tuition, books, and supplies
Note: The Fund does not cover direct college expenses such as tuition, books, supplies and/or equipment. Likewise, the Fund does not cover any graduate school expenses.
Who is eligible? Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer women can apply to Bee’s Fund. Recipients must be between the ages of 18-25 and reside within the United States.
