Mission Statement

The mission of The Alexander Foundation is to provide financial assistance to the LGBTQ+ community in need here in Colorado. We accomplish this goal through financial assistance and scholarships. Through our efforts we hope to build a stronger LGBTQ+ community by transforming thousands of lives in Colorado.

We are an all-volunteer organization and through the spirit of giving, we will build a community of strength and dignity
We focus on a healthy, strong and vibrant LGBTQ+ community that is able to contribute to the community at large and society as a whole
We help others less fortunate than ourselves, and through a tradition of caring we better ourselves as well as others
We work to create small miracles that build better relationships, alliances and partnerships that enhance the LGBTQ+ community

Organization History

For 40 years, The Alexander Foundation has been helping lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, plus (LGBTQ+) folks throughout Colorado to change their lives for the better. From emergency grants and educational assistance to catastrophic illness, we've created a tradition of caring to fulfill community needs that goes far beyond the organization's signature and recognized social and community events.

The Alexander Foundation is an all volunteer non-profit, tax-exempt organization recognized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to the Foundation are deductible to the extent permitted by the regulations of the IRS.


"Being a 2019 Alexander Foundation Scholarship recipient makes me feel strong and proud of being a non-binary queer law student. So much of my law school experience is me attempting to navigate a field dominated by cisgender straight individuals. At times it feels like I will never find my stride as an attorney. But this scholarship means I have the support of my queer family and I feel ready to take on the challenges ahead."
