Which Florida LGBTQ Nonprofit Organizations to Support This Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday 2021

Share the Love

With all of the Giving Tuesday requests coming in this season, your inbox is probably overflowing with donation solicitations. Although we all want to give as much as we can to support worthy causes, as usual during the holidays, budgets are tight and funds limited. Deciding which organization to support might the biggest challenge of your week.

To help, we’ve compiled a list of LGBTQ organizations around Florida’s Gulf Coast region that we recommend supporting. These organization work hard to make sure that our community and rights are supported and protected.

This Giving Tuesday, consider supporting LGBTQ initiatives and organizations.

Florida Gulf Coast LGBTQ Organizations to Support:

Project NO Labels

Project No Labels is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to unite all Tampa Bay LGBTQ+ individuals and straight allies through positive activities and events promoting volunteerism and activism.

Equality Florida

Equality Florida consists of two organizations – Equality Florida Institute, Inc., a 501(c)(3) educational charity and Equality Florida Action, Inc., a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization. Together, these organizations form the largest civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. Through education, grassroots organizing, coalition building, and lobbying, we are changing Florida so that no one suffers harassment or discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Metro Inclusive Health

Established in 1993, Metro Wellness & Community Centers is a 501(c)(3) organization committed to providing quality health and wellness services that are inclusive, relevant, supportive and represent the lifetime continuum of the diverse people in our community.

Tampa Bay AIDS Walk

Hosted by EPIC, in its 14 years, Tampa Bay AIDS Walk & 5k run has inspired thousands of people to walk and even more to donate, raising over $1 million to combat HIV and AIDS. The funds raised at the event remain a vital lifeline sustaining the prevention, care, and advocacy programs EPIC provides for the hundreds of men, women, and families affected by the disease in the Tampa Bay area.


EPIC, a member of Empath Health, is honored to serve everyone in the Tampa Bay area in need of HIV services and support. Every year, the organization helps to meet the growing needs of the many adults, children and families infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, provide free testing and deliver prevention and education programs.

As a community nonprofit, they are supported by the Suncoast Hospice Foundation, which helps raise funds for the care services of Empath Health member organizations. Through the community’s generous giving to the foundation, they are able to continue their mission.

SWFL LGBT Community Fund

The LGBT Community Fund of Southwest Florida is referred to as a “multi-donor fund,” which is a giving circle that engages like-minded individuals and organizations to increase philanthropic support in Southwest Florida for the unique challenges and opportunities facing Southwest Florida’s LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community.


TIGLFF is a 501(c)3 organization that showcases a selection of compelling film and video by, for or about the LGBTQ+ community that Entertains, Empowers and Enlightens the festival audience.

St Pete Pride

The purpose of St Pete Pride is to promote unity, visibility, self-esteem and a positive image of and among the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community of Tampa Bay and throughout the State of Florida by way of cultural and educational programs and activities.

Come Out St Pete

Come Out St. Pete’s mission is to inspire the LGBTQ+ community to live genuinely, raise awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and encourage public support from LGBTQ+ allies. Equality is at the forefront of all COSP initiatives and events, specifically in regard to sexual orientation and gender identity.

Kneady Kitty Rescue

Kneady Kitty is an LGBTQ-run small rescue working hard to save kittens off the streets. Most all of the little ones received arrive at the organization mom-less and in need of critical care. Donate, adopt, and spread the word about this incredible organization.
