Broadway Cares/equity Fights Aids
In 1988, Broadway Cares and Equity Fights AIDS were founded as separate AIDS-related fund-raising organizations. They merged in 1992 and have since focused their grantmaking to respond to the AIDS epidemic. The National Grants program has two objectives: to responsibly award funds as quickly as possible so that organizations responding to the AIDS crisis would be able to address the constant state of emergency that people with AIDS faced during the early days of the epidemic. The second objective was to spread the Groupís resources to as many organizations throughout the country as possible in order to create an awareness of HIV/AIDS among service providers and to use grants made by the Group to leverage greater resources to address the needs of all communities affected by HIV/AIDS. The Group now awards funds in six categories: Emergency Assistance Programs; Direct Services; One-Time Expense Requests; Substance Abuse and Harm Reduction Services; and Quality of Life Programs. Because of the economic climate, applications will be available for the National Recognized Service and Public Policy grants on Feb. 20, 2009 and for the remaining five categories on May 6, 2009.
