LGBTQI+ Organizational Inventory and Resource Guide

The Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida is proud to introduce the LGBTQI+ Organizational Inventory and Resource Guide as a new tool for nonprofit organizations in Northeast Florida. This document can help your organization — whatever the size or mission — make strides toward an inclusive and affirming environment for LGBTQI+ individuals.

Using the LGBTQI+ Organizational Inventory and Resource Guide

The LGBTQI+ Organizational Inventory and Resource Guide has three main features. The Organizational Inventory helps identify key domains to look at when assessing an organization’s opportunities for greater inclusion. All of the key domains in the inventory are linked to the Resource Guide, which contains multiple exercises, activities, and sample resources to help in that area. All items linked to in the Resource Guide have been vetted and evaluated for time to read and implement, and summarized to help organizations use the tool that is best for them. Finally, the Resource Guide has connections to peer organizations in Northeast Florida who are willing to connect with other organizations to share their own expertise and resources.

How This Tool Was Developed

The LGBTQI+ Organizational Inventory and Resource Guide was developed by the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida with support from LGBT Community Fund for Northeast Florida, a giving circle of The Community Foundation of Northeast Florida. It was created following a research process that involved 32 nonprofit organizations in Northeast Florida who took part in a series of reflective practice circles to identify areas of expertise and ongoing need as the sector moves toward better policies and practices to ensure that our community is inclusive and affirming of LGBTQI+ individuals, whether they are nonprofit clients, staff members, donors, or other stakeholders.
