Who We Are
The GLBT Chamber of Commerce Foundation is proudly supported by the Members and Staff of the North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce.
Recognizing that today’s students are tomorrow’s business and community leaders, the LGBT Chamber of Commerce Foundation (formerly GLBT Leadership Education & Advocacy Program) was created by the North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce. The Foundation works to carry out the charitable and educational objectives of the North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce, support young adults, and nurture the development of leaders in the GLBT community.
We create leadership programming and educational events. We award educational scholarships to LGBT and Allied students, who exhibit leadership potential, demonstrate strong academic abilities, and are actively involved in school and community organizations.
Since 2011 the Foundation has granted more than $120,000 in scholarships to deserving Texas students. Applicants are evaluated on demonstrated financial need, academic achievement, and involvement in community service. Preference is given to students who self-identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, members of GLBT families, or allies who have been strongly supportive of the GLBT community.
