2018 OPEN Community Grant
Sometimes great ideas remain locked as only great ideas due to a lack of resources.  OPEN acknowledges this and wants to give back to the community by actively facilitating change.  We are pleased to announce the fourth annual OPEN Community Grant program. We will award a $1,200 grant to a project or idea that supports the mission of OPEN, has a positive effect on the LGBTQ community and demonstrates financial  need. Fill out  the grant application and submit all supporting materials by December 31, 2018 to be considered.  The grant is open to all who apply.

Congratulations to our 2017 Grantee: 


Queer Climbing Social provides a safe and welcoming space at

Boulders Climbing Gym for LGBTQ+ people to build confidence and

community around social rock climbing.

At our events LGBTQ+ attendees can connect and feel empowered

to learn the technical and rewarding aspects of rock climbing. Rock climbing

with ropes is typically done in pairs, with each person supporting and

looking out for their partner. As people climb together trust develops, and

as people climb to new heights confidence grows. Adaptive climbing

equipment is available for people with physical disabilities.
