Who are the top 10 Grantmakers Supporting LGBTQ Immigrant Rights?

By: Andrew Wallace on November 6, 2016

As Immigration Reform is once again being tackled in Washington, we thought it timely to check out who are the leading funders for LGBTQ immigrants’ rights work.

According to our 2011 tracking report, the following grantmakers are leading the way when it comes to grants that support work at the intersection of LGBTQ rights and immigration:

1) Anonymous ($950,000)

2) Arcus Foundation ($790,000)

3) M.A.C. AIDS Fund ($225,000)

4) Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund ($196,000)

5) Gill Foundation ($107,500)

6) Henry van Ameringen Foundation ($50,000)

7) Vital Projects Fund ($50,000)

8) Morton K. and Jane Blaustein Foundation ($40,000)

9) David Bohnett Foundation ($30,000)

10) Horizons Foundation ($25,000)

For more information on LGBT immigration issues, check out the recent Living in Dual Shadows report from the Center for American Progress.

Editor’s Note: An original version of this post reported Gill having awarded $85,000, however, that number corrected to $107,500. It should also be noted that these numbers are drawn from our 2011 tracking report and in 2012 many foundations increased their support for immigrant rights.
