Diana Foundation News
The Diana Foundation is partnering with the University of Houston Libraries to begin an oral history project to record our members' stories of Houston's LGBTQ community and our experiences as a member of the longest, continuous LGBTQ organization in the country. The oral history project will be a part of our very own archives at the University of Houston M.D. Anderson Library Special Collections.

The Diana Foundation is seeking deserving organizations to apply to become a 2018-2019 beneficiary. Our beneficiary recipient(s) will be announced in October 2018. We invite non-profit 501(c)3 organizations that are dedicated to the Houston area community to apply today and let us know how Diana can give back. Applications must be postmarked by September 1, 2018. Click to learn more.

The Diana Foundation distributed $18,500 to our local beneficiaries at our membership meeting on July 18, 2017.  Thanks to our fundraising efforts throughout the past year and especially our overly successful 65th Awards Show, we almost doubled what we had planned to distribute this year. 
The Diana Foundation signed its official agreement with the University of Houston’s MD Anderson Library Special Collections to establish The Diana Foundation Historic Archive. Historical Diana documents, video, and memorabilia will be donated to the archive and be shared with the general public for research purposes.  Thanks to the extraordinary services of the University, materials will be preserved and digitized. The archive will become its own subsection of the University’s overall LGBT History Research Collection.
