L-Fund - assists Lesbians in the Coachella Valley to resolve short-term financial crises, unlike traditional social service or financial aid agencies that deal with long-term assistance.
The L-Fund's established reserve account often allows them to respond to a request within 24 to 48 hours. "This is the only Lesbian organization in the valley to provide immediate financial relief in an emergency situation," says L-Fund's President, Barbara Carpenter. The emotional outpouring from gift recipients creates a sense of community that inspires the Core Group, co-founders and president to do more.
The L-Fund is a compassionate, philanthropic nonprofit organization. For more information about the L-Fund, its guidelines for giving, or to make donations, visit their website www.L-Fund.org.
The Mission of The L-Fund is to provide resources and advocate for Lesbians and their families to move them from crisis to stabilization.
The L-Fund envisions a future in which members of the Lesbian community will have a reliable resource for emergency financial assistance.
