Support CGLCC and the work we do to help Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ business community
As a national not-for-profit organization, CGLCC uses financial contributions through membership and sponsorship to economically empower Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ business community. Your involvement helps us advance our educational and capacity building offerings; strengthen networks and connections; build business opportunities; and provide mentorship to young 2SLGBTQI+ entrepreneurs.
Together with our private and public partners, as well as individuals, we provide the resources 2SLGBTQI+ businesses and entrepreneurs need to grow and thrive.
There are many ways you can support our work:
Make a charitable donation to one of two CGLCC funds of the Canadian Gay & Lesbian Business Education Foundation
Your contribution plays a pivotal role in the development of programs that foster opportunities and growth for 2SLGBTQI+ businesses in Canada and beyond.
By supporting CGLCC, you directly contribute to the creation of an inclusive economy where all 2SLGBTQI+ entrepreneurs and businesses have equal access and the opportunity to actively participate, empowering them to thrive in a competitive market and inspiring future generations to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams without fear of discrimination or exclusion.
Bill Pallett Youth Leadership Fund
The Bill Pallett Youth Leadership Fund is dedicated to developing Canada’s future business leaders in the 2SLGBTQI+ community by providing at least one seat for 2SLGBTQI+ youth from each of the eight identified Canadian regions (BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic Canada and the Northern Territories) for a minimum of ten years.
Help ensure that founding CGLCC board member Bill Pallett’s legacy of providing a helping hand to tomorrow’s promising leaders carries on.

The CGLCC Leadership Development Fund provides opportunities and access to education, training and research within three areas of focus: small and medium certified 2SLGBTQI+ business enterprises; Canadian 2SLGBTQI+ regional affiliate chambers and business associations; and young 2SLGBTQI+ entrepreneurs.
