How we help

The 'Rainbow Solidarity' Foundation, under the patronage of the Fondation de France, funds targeted projects in defence of the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

Charitable and non-governmental organisations can apply for funding from the Foundation to support projects fighting homophobia, or for lobbying, support or legal aid for the LGBT community.

Previously supported projects include advocacy, training, legal aid, safety measures, emergency accommodation, outreach work with the press, the production of publications, event organisation...

The stipends awarded by the Foundation amount to between 1000 and 5000 euros so as to enable practical and specific projects.

In exceptional cases, the Foundation can support projects over several years (up to 10000 euros) as long as the applicant organisation can demonstrate that their action strengthens the non-governmental sector working with the LGBT community (training, increasing the capacity of existing players, peer support, etc).

Projects based in Africa, Maghreb, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia will be given priority.

The foundation does not usually consider AIDS-related projects, medical assistance, financial or career support.
