Our Mission

Provide opportunities for local LGBTQIA+ youth with financial aid to pursue college or other advanced education opportunities.

We’ve disbursed over ten scholarships from $500 - $1,000 each to Cape Henlopen High School students (i.e., Gay Straight Alliance); we are looking to expand across the Kent and Sussex County school districts over the coming years.
