Jon Sims Endowment Fund for the Performing Arts (JSEF)

The SFLGFB is affiliated with the Jon Sims Endowment Fund for the Performing Arts (JSEF). Its endowed funds have been given to this 501(c)(3) organization for investment purposes. The JSEF exists to provide financial support for LGBTQ+ performing arts organizations. To carry on the dreams of founder Jon Sims, the JSEF attracts funds and bequests, invests the contributions, and distributes grants to qualified groups.
