Where to Give

Once you’ve decided you want to give, there’s the important question of where to give. At Horizons Foundation, we support hundreds of donors every year in giving to the LGBT community, and we’re ready to support you in your giving.

You can support LGBT young people who are coming out. You can help LGBT families stay intact. You can power the marriage equality movement. You can repay a nonprofit organization that helped you in the past. You can make a gift right now, or you can designate a future gift to an organization that supports the causes about which you’re passionate.

What really matters is that you give, whatever the size of your gift. Give to what speaks to you, what moves you, what you believe makes a difference.

Philanthropic advising

Whether you know exactly which causes you want to support or you aren’t sure where your contributions will have the most impact, Horizons foundation can support you in giving with ease and effectiveness.

Lesbian familySince Horizons has more than 30 years of grantmaking experience in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, we have significant depth of knowledge across multiple LGBT issues. Through our Donor-Advised Funds program, Horizons manages more than $11 million in assets for over 90 funds, ranging in size from a few thousand dollars to several million. Horizons assists donors with giving both to and outside the LGBT community, in and beyond the Bay Area, nationally and internationally.

What really matters is that you give, whatever the size of your gift. Give to what speaks to you, what moves you, what you believe makes a difference.

We connect you to the causes that matter most to you. We offer individualized programs to help you identify and achieve your philanthropic goals through thoughtful and effective giving. All such conversations are confidential and without cost. We’re here to help you give.
