The mission of the Lesbian Health Fund is to improve the health of lesbians and sexual minority women (SMW) and their families through research.
LHF grants have been crucial to propelling promising research questions to the attention of other, larger granting agencies. The grants LHF provides allows researchers to test concepts and collect pilot data that must be done before other agencies will consider funding larger studies.
Receiving an LHF grant is often a catalyst to receiving much larger grants from other agencies. Our grantees have been awarded millions of dollars from federal agencies and research funding organizations to pursue groundbreaking research in lesbian health that would not have been possible without the initial funding from LHF.
The way we raise these much needed funds is through auctions and financial contributions.
