Horizons Foundation

Host Organization: Horizons Foundationmdi-circle-small San Francisco, CA, mdi-circle-small


In 1980, an innovative idea was born: To form a community foundation rooted in and about the LGBTQ experience; a foundation that would be funded by the community and for the community; that would support community organizations that advocate for the LGBTQ community’s rights, meet its needs, and celebrate its culture. Horizons supports organizations in every part of our diverse LGBT community, specifically targeting smaller, newer organizations, which, for all intent and purposes, have few other possibilities for foundation support. Horizons has a remarkable track record for being the first – or sometimes very early – funder of emerging, cutting-edge organizations, many of which have become pillars of our community. In addition to its robust grantmaking programs, Horizons also mobilizes individual donors to maximize the impact of their giving, connect with others who share their interests, and reach their personal philanthropic goals by linking them to organizations doing the work that each donor cares about most.

The fund addresses a number of LGBTQ priority areas: Community grants, low-interest loans, global faith and equality, and scholarships in the San Francisco Bay area.
