Horizons is the world's first community foundation of, by, and for LGBTQ people.

We invest in LGBTQ nonprofits, strengthen a culture of LGBTQ giving, and build a permanent endowment to secure our community’s future for generations to come.

The future is ours

To create

Icon of heart made out of bricks

We fund throughout the LGBTQ community, often prioritizing innovative, grassroots solutions in service to its most under-resourced populations.

To Give

Icon of hand holding out heart

From four decades of experience and relationships, we are experts on LGBTQ issues in the SF Bay Area — and the best partner in your charitable giving.


Infinity icon

We promote legacy giving, including to our LGBTQ Community Endowment Fund, which will support our community for generations to come.

An Oasis for LGBTQ Asylum Seekers

Horizons Foundation’s grantee partner OLAS, which means “wave” in Spanish and stands for LGBT Organization for Support and Solidarity, works with LGBTQ Latin-American immigrants, especially asylum seekers, in order to foster self-acceptance, emotional wellbeing, and community support.
