Arcus Grants 50K to Gay Military Org

By Charlotte Robinson, December 11, 2012
The Fabulous Arcus Foundation announced a grant of $50,000 to Out-Serve-SLDN, the global association of actively-serving LGBT U.S. military personnel, to support the leadership of Allyson Robinson, the association’s newly-appointed executive director. The grant is the first of a number of “New Leadership” grants the Foundation plans to make in support of promising social justice leaders & their work. The one-time grants will be an element in a larger initiative that Arcus will launch in 2013 to advance the caliber, diversity & effectiveness of social justice leadership. The initiative is intended to support the leaders’ ability to reach out to key partners, build effective alliances & realize professional development. Kevin Jennings, Arcus Foundation’s Executive Director stated, “Investments in leadership are key to the success of any movement & that is why we decided to complement our grantmaking work with these ‘New Leadership ‘ grants. As a soldier, activist & minister, Allyson Robinson has already made extraordinary contributions to our country and to the world. In her new role at OutServe-SLDN, she has a tremendous opportunity for make further positive impact & this grant is intended to help her maximize that potential.” Now if Arcus would support OUTTAKE VOICES we’d be in a position to complete with mainstream media at a time that it’s crucial that our stories be heard. Updates to Come…:)
