The Adam Foundation's 23-year legacy is steeped in addressing the health care needs of those LGBT individuals who may not be on the "normal radar screen" of the Triad community. We have proudly expanded our grant funding reach over the past 2 decades to include additional areas such as some cutting-edge arts performances, equality concerns, youth safety issues such as bullying & homelessness, and critical education issues that impact the Triad's LGBT community.
Our AF Grant Application Cycle begins each spring. Applications are accepted from qualified 501(c) 3 organizations. Be sure to get on our email list to receive schedule updates each spring for all critical deadlines. BUT, it is never too early to begin your process.....flesh out your project ...... TALK TO THE AF BOARD for guidance on your potential grant application.
THINK BIG OR SMALL! AF is looking for projects in the following areas that would impact the local LGBT community: our AF INITIATIVES. This page also provides a video shown at our 23rd Adam Festival which has our supporters explaining the importance of our AF INITIATIVES. Which one does YOUR project or idea address?

AF Grant Orientation / Public Meeting
Thank you goes to The New Winston Museum for providing meeting space for this AF event. 713 South Marshall Street in Winston-Salem near Old Salem.
This is an orientation period for any interested grant applicants to discuss the process, ask questions, get assistance with their application, have the application reviewed, etc. The meeting is open to all those interested in submitting an application/project idea, and is strongly encouraged so as to save applicants time in their application process overall.
