Many thanks to the BHT Foundation (formerly Brother Help Thyself) for its grant of $1000 to support the DCDD Ames-Whitbeck Good Fair Fund (GFF). These funds in the GFF will support members who have financial barriers to their participation in our activities. Find out more about the DCDD Ames-Whitbeck Good Fairy Fund at


For information about the BHT Foundation and how to support this local organization, you can find them at The mission of the BHT Foundation is “to help, build, and transform our LGBTQ+ communities, by providing financial support to local nonprofits. We want that support to go where it will make a real difference. So, we support smaller, underfunded organizations that fill gaps in vital supports and services to marginalized folx first.”
