Annual Data Collection Page

Thank you for your interest in supporting our ongoing efforts to document the scale and scope of philanthropic support for LGBTQ communities.

Each year we conduct a data collection campaign to gather detailed information on funding for LGBTQ communities awarded by U.S.-based Foundations to produce the Resource Tracking Report Series. Our forthcoming report will document investments in LGBTQ communities from U.S.-based foundations in calendar year 2021.  The data you provide will be invaluable not only for Funders for LGBTQ Issues’ annual tracking report but also for our other special reports, including the biennial Global Resources Report produced in partnership with Global Philanthropy Project (GPP).

We rely on the participation of foundations to produce the most comprehensive survey of U.S. Foundation support for LGBTQ communities and issues. 

Does your foundation plan to share LGBTQ grants data for inclusion in our 2021 report? Take a pledge to let our team know and request support!
