The Fund in the Sun Foundation was established in 2006 as a not-for-profit public charity dedicated to the LGBT community and Fire Island Pines. Our mission is two-fold:

(1) To donate grants to worthy LGBT charitable organizations whose purposes and activities are of interest to those less fortunate, LGBT children and youth and people affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic -- specifically those who lack the infrastructure to initiate major fundraising for their survival, and

(2) To provide funding for projects and initiatives designed to protect, enhance and maintain the environment, cultural life, health and infrastructure of the Fire Island Pines community.
