Group seeking beneficiaries
The Lake Tahoe Gay Lesbian Foundation is soliciting applications from nonprofit organizations that are interested in being a beneficiary of this Stateline-based group. Applications are available through July at http://www.ltglf.org.
The groups, to be selected in August, will be the designated beneficiaries for LTGLF for one year. Although it is not necessary for beneficiaries to have an obvious gay or lesbian affiliation, it is necessary that the money from LTGLF be used to promote gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual causes or people within the respective organization who fit this category. For details, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
