For the past 35 years, Funders for LGBTQ Issues has worked tirelessly to increase funding for LGBTQ communities. When we were founded in 1982, foundation funding for LGBTQ issues totaled less than $250,000. As of 2015, that funding increased to more than $160 million.
Still, it isn’t enough; it is hardly commensurate to the challenges LGBTQ communities face and wholly inadequate to support the big dreams of our movement.
With our small but mighty team, we’re working to further increase funding and we helped leverage more than $5 million in new funding for the LGBTQ movement in 2015 (the last year for which we have funding data). Every dollar you give will help us leverage even more resources for our movement in the years to come.
