The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Straight (LGBT&S) Alliance Fund is pleased to announce the appointment of four new members to their Board.

A fully staffed, experienced and engaged Board gives the LGBT&S Alliance fund the necessary strength, resource and support to embark on their strategic plan in the coming months. These new board members were recruited thoughtfully and carefully in order to design and bring a strategic plan to fruition.  Each one brings new talents and experience that complement and support the existing Board.
