Aqua Foundation for Women

Aqua Foundation for Women


The mission of the Aqua Foundation for Women is to serve as the funding catalyst for lesbian, bisexual, and transgender wellness and equality in South Florida through grants, scholarships and initiatives.


Our annual grant program awards organizations in a variety of areas including wellness, youth empowerment, therapeutic counseling, cultural enrichment, equality and more.

We provide scholarships to benefit high school, college or graduate students who are active in South Florida’s LBT community. A key role of this program is to build tomorrow’s leaders today.

Each scholarship recipient is paired with a mentor whose expertise is typically in the same field as the recipient’s field of study. The mentor’s objective is to lend support to the recipient with her education and community goals.

This year the AFW is embarking on a health initiative. The Foundation will focus efforts on understanding and treating the unique health needs of LBT women. We recognize this as an area of necessary growth for healthcare providers and institutions, as well as within our own community.

Identifying our Community Needs
We create an open dialogue with our community through conferences, surveys and outreach to local community leaders and the many women who make up our LBT population in South Florida.

Fostering Philanthropy and Building Community
Encouraging volunteerism and the act of giving is accomplished through ongoing events, membership and leading by example.

Building Strategic Alliances and Collaboration
Integrating with mainstream organizations and collaborating with GLBTQ organizations to build community and relationships to promote wellness and equality.
