Every year, The Plus Collective provides grants to LGBTQ+ non-profits and community organizations doing the important work in our community.
Time Out Youth (TOY) is one of those organizations. Here’s what they had to say about The Plus Collective and the impact on TOY:
“The Plus Collective has long been a supporter of the work at Time Out Youth. Their commitment to nurturing the growth and development of LGBTQ organizations, like ours, serves to promote the health and wellness of LGBTQ people in Charlotte.”
Charlotte Black Pride, which annually celebrates the culture of Charlotte’s LGBTQ community of color, offered their feelings about The Plus Collective and how it impacts their organization:
“The Plus Collective is like a guardian Angel to CBP. The support of TPC continues to give us hope that CBP matters to a community we’ve often felt does not embrace us or understand the impact CPB has on society. TPC’s funding plays an important role in allowing CBP to continue to be a prominent influence throughout our underserved community.”
Transcend Charlotte’s mission is the pursuit of equity and social justice for transgender and gender expansive youth and adults ages 18+ through education, advocacy, mental health and social support services in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties. Here’s what they had to say about how funding from The Plus Collective:
“At Transcend we dearly value partnership and collaboration. We are stronger together and we appreciate that the Plus Collective is part of our journey and certainly one of the partners that makes us stronger!”
