Ric Weiland Leaves $65 Million to Support Gay Rights and HIV/AIDS Organizations
Date:2/24/2008

puter programmer and a very generous man," said Paul G. Allen, co-founder of Microsoft and friend of Weiland. "His gift to the Pride Foundation demonstrates his compassion and dedication to the community, and I'm very proud to have had him as a friend. He will be sorely missed but his legacy lives on through the work of Pride and the charitable organizations it supports."

Through his estate, Weiland established a fund at Pride Foundation that will provide $46 million over the next eight years to 10 national LGBT and HIV/AIDS organizations that he personally selected. In addition, he bequeathed $19 million directly to Pride Foundation for our scholarships and grants supporting the Northwest's LGBT community.

The following organizations will be receiving funding from the Weiland Designated Fund at Pride Foundation:

-- amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research

-- Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD)

-- Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)

-- In The Life

-- International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC)

-- Lambda Legal

-- National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

-- Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG)

-- Project Inform

-- Servicemembers Legal Defense Network

"Ric gave scores of LGBT groups significant resources to achieve real change during his lifetime. He did not seek the spotlight -- or even acknowledgement -- as he gave away tens of millions of dollars," said Urvashi Vaid, executive director of the national Arcus Foundation, who also knew Ric as a friend. "With this extraordinary gift, Ric's legacy challenges each of us to commit more fully to our own community and to realize that there is much more still to be done."

Ric Weiland died in June of 2006, at the age of 53, committing suicide after struggling with depression. He is survived by his partner, Mike Schaefer of Seattle and his nieces and nephews.
