We are a grant-giving fund for LGBT/HIV community groups in Brighton & Hove

Welcome to Rainbow Fund

The Rainbow Fund is a Brighton and Hove based grant-giving fund for local LGBT and HIV/AIDS organisations.
The Rainbow Fund has an open scrutiny process to provide full transparency for donors.
The Rainbow Fund has benefited from a range of high profile events and activities. Most of the leading local LGBT bars, clubs and groups have actively supported the Fund at some point.
Over the last five years, a range of local groups have benefited from the Fund, including MindOut, Lunch Positive, Allsorts, Sussex Beacon, Brighton Our Story, Older & Out, LGBT Community Safety Fourm, Pride Accessibility, Out In Brighton, The Justin Campaign, FTM and GEMS.


The Rainbow Fund acts as a central point for fundraising for Brighton and Hove LGBT and HIV communities. Local venues, businesses and individuals fundraise for The Rainbow Fund, safe in the knowledge that all the money goes to those communities, with no administration costs…

Grant Giving

The Rainbow Fund has at least one “grants round” each year to consider applications from groups and organisations who make a real difference to the lives of the local LGBT and HIV communities. A panel of independent advisors, (independent of the management of the company) considers each application carefully.


Individuals wishing to donate can do so quickly and easily, as a one off or as a regular donation…
