The Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce on Thursday received a $10,000 grant from Wells Fargo to expand a program to foster development, growth, and sustainability of certified LGBT business enterprises.
The LGBT business group picked up the grant check during the annual National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce conference, last week in Palm Springs, California.
“We have supported NGLCC’s Supplier Diversity Certification process since its inception and this funding will allow us to take that support to the next level,” Miami-Dade gay chamber President Steve Adkins said in a news release.
“The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is excited to see the Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce grow as an organization and a voice in the LGBT owned and allied businesses community,” NGLCC Senior Vice President Sam McClure said in the release. “They have shown tremendous growth in the size of their business membership and outreach programs, embodying the mission that NGLCC has continuously strived for.”
