The Point Foundation provides multiyear scholarships, leadership training, and mentoring for LGBT students.

"Point Foundation, established in 2001, was initially funded by a grant from Bruce C. Lindstrom & Carl T. Strickland. Point Foundation is what it is today--the premier national LGBTQ non-profit organization designed to nurture the LGBTQ leaders of the next generation--because of the generous support of others. Point Foundation empowers promising LGBTQ students to achieve their full academic and leadership potential--despite the obstacles often put before them--to make a significant impact on society.

By identifying and supporting these scholars, Point hopes to provide a greater level of acceptance and respect within future generations for all persons, regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender identity. We honor our scholars--their leadership, their acumen, their early involvement in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer causes, and their pledge to make the world a fairer and better place for all." ~from Website
