Grants and Scholarships

Every year JustFundKy awards grants to individuals and groups working to advance the fair treatment of LGBTQ Kentuckians. The earnings from the Cliff Todd Endowment are used to promote education efforts of other individuals and organizations to increase awareness and understanding of the LGBTQ community in Kentucky.


Every year JustFundKY awards an education grant in honor of the Imperial Court of Kentucky. The Imperial Court has been an incredible partner in helping establish our endowment. We are reminded of their contribution every year as we award a grant in their honor.


Grants will be awarded based on the earnings from the endowment, the principal will not be disturbed. As a result, the amounts to be awarded will depend on the amount of earnings from the previous year. We anticipate the typical grant amount for the coming year to be in the range from $1,000 to $5,000.


The goal of the Clifford Todd Endowment grants is to promote fairness and LGBTQ equality throughout the Commonwealth. Education is the method we have chosen for accomplishing our goal.
We are seeking to:

  • Promote understanding, tolerance and acceptance of LGBTQ Kentuckians by the community at large.
  • Promote grassroots leadership development.
  • Build collaborative efforts between LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ organizations.
  • Create inclusive communities.


JustFundKy does not fund and Clifford Todd Endowment grants will not be awarded to:

  • Religious organizations for religious purposes
  • Political candidates or political parties
  • For profit corporations
  • Individuals
  • Capital campaigns
  • Endowments
  • Direct services
