  • Projects must align with the spirit of our mission statement: We are an order of Post-Modern Nuns, dedicated to the promulgation of omniversal joy, and the expiation of stigmatic guilt. We work to raise money for charitable organizations, fight for queer rights and visibility, do safer sex outreach, bring joy and unity to our community, and strive diligently to keep our sense of humor, never taking ourselves so seriously that we forget to have fun. We gladly welcome all races, creeds, genders, and sexual orientations.
  • Projects must be operated within the following counties in the State of Florida: Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Volusia, Brevard.

Historically, we have funded smaller grass roots organizations whose focus is to improve and strengthen the LGBTQ+ and GRSM communities. All applications will be considered as long as no more than 10% of funding is applied to administration costs (including travel and personnel).

The Orlando Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Abbey of St. Gertrude De Nivelles have a commitment to the entire LGBTQ+ and GRSM communities. There will be no guarantee of continued funding for agencies or projects who have received monies in previous grant cycle.
