About Us

Horizons fuels the LGBT movement by increasing support for diverse SF Bay Area nonprofits that help thousands of people each day. Our work strengthens organizations and their leaders, mobilizes donors and funders to inspire increased giving, and actively secures our LGBT community's future for generations to come.

Horizons is the world's first LGBT community foundation, and the only nonprofit thatsupports all parts of the LGBT community. We're the first to provide grants to emergingnonprofits and a core funder for anchor organizations that advocate for LGBT rights, serve LGBT youth and elders, ensure community health, and promote arts and culture.

Horizons works to increase giving in the LGBT community, educating donors and combining individual donations so that all gifts benefit multiple organizations and thousands of lives. We also advocate for important LGBT issues with mainstream foundations and corporate funders who rely on our expertise, bringing millions of additional dollars to LGBT nonprofits over the last 30 years.

Horizons actively secures our community's future by promoting planned giving and building the LGBT Community Endowment Fund, a permanent fund fiercely dedicated to meeting the needs, securing the rights, and celebrating the lives of LGBT people – forever.
