Funders for LGBTQ Issues was founded 35 years ago in 1982 at the annual conference of the National Network of Grantmakers, when a small group of funders met to discuss how philanthropy could better support lesbian and gay issues.
Our mission is to increase the scale and impact of philanthropic resources aimed at enhancing the well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities, promoting equity, and advancing racial, economic and gender justice.
For our 35th anniversary, we want to celebrate and acknowledge the philanthropic leadership that has brought LGBTQ funding to this moment. We are thrilled to announce our inaugural 2017 Pride in Philanthropy Awards, celebrating 35 years of Funders for LGBTQ Issues and honoring four individuals and institutions that have led the way in funding the advancement of equality, social justice, and better lives for LGBTQ communities.
