Request Funding

Thank you for your interest in the work of the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation, Inc. and contributing to our mission through your own work.

Grant Requests in the U.S.

As of April 2015, the Foundation in the U.S. will only consider grant requests from members of the LGBT Sports Coalition. We regret we cannot offer support to work outside of this group at this time.

For additional information on this change to the Foundation in the U.S., read the full story on this exciting transition.
