INVEST WITH US TO DEVELOP LGBTQ BUSINESS LEADERS
How do we change the future? We devote intentional and sustainable resources to support the educational paths of our next generation of leaders. We do this through the Quorum scholarship fund at the Quorum Foundation. We know that Quorum’s core values of building, connecting, and strengthening the LGBTQ+ and Allied business communities in all forms are truly expressed when we invest in these leaders and work to transform the climate thus enabling social and economic progress for our entire community. What is good for the world and what is good for business are more closely aligned than ever. Astonishing opportunities emerge when people connect. We work to drive change by creating the possibilities and opportunities for the best and the brightest to shine and, through the excellent work of PFund, we are able to truly change the future.

The Quorum Scholarships support LGBTQ+ students with entrepreneurial spirit working to strengthen and sustain the LGBTQ+ and Allied business community. These scholarships represent Quorum’s deep commitment in creating future business leadership and we will be working with supporters at every level to ensure this fund’s success.
We currently have three scholarship opportunities available:
1) Quorum Scholarship: Supports an LGBTQ+ student with entrepreneurial spirit pursuing a college or graduate degree in any area of the business field
2) Beverly Cory/Women in Business Scholarship: Specifically supports a female-identified LGBTQ+ student with entrepreneurial spirit pursuing a college or graduate degree in any area of the business field
3) Lee Roehl Business Scholarship: Supports an LGBTQ+ Student in memory of Quorum co-founder, entrepreneur, and community leader Lee Roehl.
INVEST WITH US IN THE QUORUM FOUNDATION
We ask this year for a donation at any level (that feels important to you) to assist in our efforts to continue offering our annual Quorum Scholarships. This investment in the life of an LGBTQ student is an important way to support both the LGBTQ business community and the community at large.
PHILANTHROPY AND QUORUM
Though Quorum is a business organization, it is a unique Chamber of Commerce in its philanthropic nature. As former Quorum President Todd Park said, “A good environment for business encourages more investment back into the community economically, philanthropically and culturally…Quorum is a fitting place for these organizations as we all share a common objective in improving the world around one life at a time…achieving unity in the community.” Many of Quorum’s members are nonprofits and they often speak passionately about how Quorum and our members have helped to sustain nonprofits throughout the Twin Cities.
Twin Cities Quorum thanks you for considering a gift for our Foundation. We are proud to be among so many excellent Twin Cities nonprofits dedicated to strengthening and supporting the LGBTQ+ and Allied community.Rebecca Waggoner, Executive Director
