Reviewing the publicly available financials for Aqua shows that only 1/3 of money raised goes to grants and scholarships! The executive director takes home 20 cents on every dollar this foundation gets as her salary!! Another 40% goes back into the events themselves. The tax forms are readily available. http://990s.foundationcenter.org/990_pdf_archive/200/200873622/200873622_201212_990.pdf

The Aqua Foundation for Women has been a beacon for promoting, serving, and assisting the growth of South Florida's LBT community. It's dedicated staff and board are composed of passionate individuals who are constantly looking for new ways to grow the organization. Through its grants program, a variety of service organizations have been able to establish, sustain, or grow their programming for the LBT Community and further enrich the quality of life of women in South Florida.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their support of LBT cinema. The Aqua Foundation recognizes the importance and value of fair representation of LBT women in the cinematic arts. Through their fiscal support of the Aqua She Screening Series, O Cinema is able to bring together a diverse group of women to be entertained and empowered through quality works of film and through the social components of coming together as a community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Let's help Aqua grow to new heights!

Aqua Foundation for Women is an amazing organization for Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender women in South Florida. They raise money for LBT women's health, wellness, education and scholarships. They have given back to the community almost $340,000.

As a recipient of several grants from Aqua, I am sincerely grateful for their efforts. With the grant money that was awarded to us we have been able to reach out to the LBT women's community and provide them with important health and education initiatives that have touched many lives within our community.

Aqua is a one-of-a-kind community funder in South Florida and we benefit every day through their efforts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the day-to-day assistance that I have been able to offer to LBT women at our center.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing. It works so perfectly now.
