DIFFA’s Grant Making

DIFFA has granted more than $41 million to support nonprofit organizations across the country combating HIV/AIDS.

DIFFA’s grant making tradition has been to support start up or emerging programs and ideas that reflect a unique or innovative approach to the HIV/AIDS epidemic; projects which incorporate strategic collaboration between agencies or efforts that use proven techniques to prevent infection and provide care. Due to DIFFA’s structure, we are able to grant in targeted areas through local chapters as well as nationally.

The Foundation issues grants annually, although we can and do respond to emergency requests. DIFFA grants to hundreds of organizations across the U.S., including recent grantees such as Gay Men’s Health Crisis, Alpha Workshops, God’s Love We Deliver, Jerusalem House and Bailey House, among dozens of others.

DIFFA National RFP 2016

DIFFA National has released its 2016 Request for Proposals.  These grants are available to 501(C)(3) organizations to support prevention, education and direct care in the fight against HIV/AIDS.  Applications will be considered from organizations that are located in the New York metropolitan area; groups which have a national scope or reach; or organizations located in areas where DIFFA does not have chapters or community partners.

While response to this RFP does not guarantee funding, we hope to support as many of the qualified applications as possible.  The RFP narrative should be kept short and efficient, but we do ask for all materials, including financial information, to be submitted by Wednesday, September 28.  Grants will generally range from $2,500 – $10,000 but requests may be considered up to $25,000. Final awards may vary from what is requested after review of submitted materials.  Please see the RFP for further instructions.
