OUT Georgia Business Alliance and United Way of Greater Atlanta launched the OUT Georgia Impact Fund to drive a meaningful, measurable, and lasting impact for LGBTQ+ communities in the Greater Atlanta region and across the state of Georgia.

The OUT Georgia Impact Fund, powered by United Way of Greater Atlanta, is guided by a community-led advisory committee to make grants to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
