Horizons’ Donor-Advised Fund Program

Donor-advised funds are an efficient and effective way for individual donors to make their charitable contributions and receive immediate tax advantages. Horizons’ program includes online access to your fund, socially responsible investment options, specialized grantmaking advice, and more.

Guide to Gift Planning for the LGBT Community

Horizons created the Guide to Gift Planning for the LGBT Community as a free resource to help you think about and plan the legacy you want to leave. The guide also highlights how planned gifts to LGBT causes are the key to securing our community’s financial future.

Workplace giving

Find out if your employer offers workplace giving — not only does it make it easy for you to give, you may also be able to double the impact of your donations if your employer has a matching program.


GuideStar is a searchable database of more than 1.5 million nonprofits, with information on missions, current projects, tax forms, and more. It’s a great place to research organizations where you’re considering making a donation.
