Welcome to the official website for Gilana's Fund, a non-profit organization that celebrates and encourages educational programming promoting acceptance and understanding of our communities, each other, and ourselves.
Gilana Shira Alpert was a redheaded, friendly, opinionated, loving young woman who passed away in November of 2007 at the age of 26. She made a lasting impact on those who knew her, and this Fund keeps her legacy alive.

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope some day you'll join us and the world will be as one."
