History / Biographical
The Gay Community Appeal was founded in 1980 by a group of activists including Harvey Hamburg, Tom Beechy, and Rosemary Barnes. In response to the barriers to traditional funding sources, the GCA was established to fill that void by raising funds to support lesbian and gay organizations and individuals. It’s mandate was to fund projects which equally benefited the lesbian and gay community. Incorporated in 1980, the GCA held its first annual fundraising campaign that spring. Raising over $19,000, the CGA provided grants for 15 individuals and organizations that year to carry work of value to the community. In 1981, the Gay Community Appeal Foundation was granted charitable status. The GCA would eventually change its name to the Lesbian Gay Community Appeal. In 1983, the Support Our Selves (S.O.S) Campaign was launched, which created 4 funding categories including social/cultural, legal/political, social services/health, and research/education. Every year a Project Selection Committee was formed, which was equally composed of men and women from the community, who had expertise in one of the funding categories. The committee reviewed the grant applications and made recommendations to the Board of the Appeal and the Trustees of the Foundation. In addition to offering grants, the CGA established the Front Money Fund, which provided interest free loans for projects that would benefit the lesbian and/or gay community. In 1983, the CGA presented Fruit Cocktail, a biannual musical variety stage show that showcased the talents of hundreds of lesbian and gay men. The first Fruit Cocktail production raised $13,000 and involved 250 volunteers. It was attended by 2400 people and had 2 sold out performances. Fruit Cocktail became an almost biannual institution in the community and continued until 1995. At its start, the CGA incorporated a non-hierarchical management approach. Its Board of Directors was comprised of 12 members divided equally between lesbian and gay men. The CGA had a number of volunteer based committees including the Project Selection Committee, the Special Events Committee, the Public Relations and Education Committee, the Phone-A-Thon Committee, the Corporate Giving Committee, the Volunteer Committee, and the Projects Committee. In 1990, the CGA opened its first office and hired a coordinator. In 2008, the LGCA changed its name to the Community One Foundation to better represent the diversity of Toronto’s LGBTTIQQAS community. Over the years, the organization has encouraged queer community groups to obtain registered charitable status as a way to strengthen their own fundraising efforts. The Community One Foundation continues to support a diverse and ever-evolving range of LGBTTIQQAS community organizations, services, and projects.
