In 1987 members of the Harvard Gay and Lesbian Caucus established a private charitable foundation, The Open Gate: a Fund for Gay and Lesbian Life at Harvard University . The Open Gate has tax-exempt status and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

The generosity of Caucus members has enabled The Open Gate to provide funding for a variety of activities and events, among them:

  •   The HGLC Public Service Fellowship , for which the 2011 application deadline is March 21.
  •   The Resource Center for Queer Students and Allies (QSA, formerly BGLTSA)
  •   Symposia on such topics as same-sex marriage, the biological basis of sexual orientation, and religion and sexual orientation
  •   Film series illuminating sexual orientation and its cultural context
  •   Performances, exhibits, and publications
  •   Student and faculty research projects

The Open Gate is continuing to fund a variety of projects at Harvard initiated by GLBT students, faculty, or organizations. The Open Gate offers guidelines that explain How to Apply for Grants .
