Rainbow Fund

The Rainbow Fund was created in 2008 by Bill Hodgson and Manny Muller to assist organizations supporting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. The fund has a long-term goal of establishing a retirement home/community centre for elderly LGBT people who want a sense of community in their later years.

Read more about Bill and Manny’s charitable vision in the 2012 Vancouver Foundation magazine article.

“We had some older friends, and thought ‘What’s going to happen to these people who don’t have a lot of money? That’s why we decided to start the Rainbow Fund.” Bill Hodgson
