Welcome! Guilford Green Foundation seeks to courageously unite our community through meaningful participation and by fostering organizations that advance LGBTQ persons and issues.

WHO WE ARE

We strive for a day when everyone is accepted and valued for who they are.
Although we concentrate our efforts on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community, we believe in the intrinsic dignity and rights of every individual. We believe in people’s rights to feel safe, healthy, respected and included, from teens who are kicked out of their homes for questioning their gender to the elderly who struggle to find services that include their partners. And we work towards securing those rights every day.

WHAT WE DO

The Guilford Green Foundation unites and strengthens the greater Greensboro community by supporting the needs of our LGBTQ neighbors and promoting understanding by all residents.

We do this by providing financial support for nonprofits and hosting programs and initiatives that advance this mission. We also serve as a resource for residents, through the LGBTQ Center, as well as our online guide that seeks to connect LGBTQ residents with services and community groups that will meet their needs.
