ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

JQ International is the only organization in LA serving the Jewish LGBTQ+ community and contributes to sustaining an inclusive and diverse Jewish community. Since the pandemic began, JQ has responded to new challenges its community faces, including setting up online support groups and providing cash and food gift certificates for those in its community facing food insecurity.

GRANT PURPOSE

To mitigate the economic hardship resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and to help them achieve long-term organizational sustainability.

Thanks to the generous investment of The Foundation, JQ International can meet the needs of our most vulnerable community members and provide life-affirming support services, educational outreach and training, and connection for LGBTQ+ Jews and allies during this challenging time.
