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.

Why Give OUT Day Is Critical This Year

This year, over 500 anti-LGBTQ bills have been proposed in state legislatures. But hundreds of LGBTQ nonprofits are raising funds through Horizons' Give OUT Day to counter these attacks. 

Highlighting Queer of Color Joy Through Performance

As a recipient of Horizons’ flagship Community Issues grant, Detour Dance was able to present an immersive theater performance on queer possibility.
