Our three year strategy presents a bold new vision and mission for Funders for LGBTQ Issues, outlining four strategic directions toward our new North Star.



In 3 years, Funders for LGBTQ Issues will be a bridge between movements and funders, creating a robust, responsive, and organized philanthropic funding infrastructure for fully resourcing intersectional LGBTQ movements.


Funders for LGBTQ Issues’ three year strategy outlines a bold new mission for the organization and for the first time provides an organizational vision statement.


We envision a world where all queer, trans, and gender non-conforming people are liberated, loved, valued, respected, and thriving.


Funders for LGBTQ Issues educates and organizes funders, and supports power-building to create an abundance of resources for the justice and liberation of all queer communities.



Funders for LGBTQ Issues’ three year strategy names identifies four strategic directions – three external and one internal – that orient our work in pursuit of our mission and vision.

  1. We organize philanthropy to increase the resources directed towards LGBTQ communities and movements across the United States.
  2. We are a home where LGBTQ leaders and allies can gain the knowledge, relationships, and skills to advance philanthropic organizing in service of movement-building.
  3. We tell the story of our work and impact through research and strategic communications centered on philanthropic organizing and power-building.
  4. We meet the needs of the moment through internal capacity building that enables staff and board to thrive.


We are excited to bring the next iteration of Funders for LGBTQ Issues to life, in partnership with you.
