The Diana Foundation is focused on assisting and supporting the needs of the gay community, by distributing funds to organizations that are dedicated to providing services that enhance the lives of deserving individuals in our diverse community.

Founded in 1953 in Houston, Texas, it is nationally recognized as the oldest continuously running gay organization in the country. Initially formed as a social organization, its membership recognized many unmet needs in the gay community and began fundraising efforts to assist and support fledgling groups, struggling to provide services.

Achieving 501(c)3 status in 1976, over $1.6MM have been donated so far, to organizations large and small by its members. Each year the board accepts proposals for consideration and the membership votes on the final beneficiaries.

Fundraising efforts by the Diana’s keep true to its founding spirit of camaraderie by concentrating on annual social events that enable its membership and guests to make contributions, through membership dues, attendance fees to the Awards Dinner and Show held each Spring, and purchasing tickets to the Country Dinner Weekend events in the Fall.

The Diana Foundation has annually donated funds to worthwhile civic, charitable and educational endeavors. Recent beneficiaries have included Legacy Community Health Services, Montrose Counseling Center, Gulf Coast Archives and Museum (GCAM) and The Charles Botts Memorial Archives and Library (BOTTS).

Future assistance will continue to be focused in the areas of most need in:

·         Health Services

·         Social Services

·         Education and Cultural Endeavors
