Celebrating Horizons’ 40th Anniversary

Horizons 40th Anniversary

The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging us to rethink what it means to be in community. More clearly now than ever, to be in community means to care for one another  — all of us — through thick and thin. It's how we've responded to this pandemic — but also how we've worked for 40 years.

We've responded — in community — to this pandemic, helping LGBTQ organizations, and the thousands of people they serve, stay strong.

We've been in community since the beginning: 2020 marks 40 years as the world’s first LGBTQ community foundation.

Join us in celebration of our Ruby Anniversary!

You — our community — have made it possible for Horizons to be here for 40 years. Though we can’t gather in person, we hope you’ll celebrate our 40th Anniversary in community with us. There are many ways to celebrate.


Make a special $40 monthly gift or a one-time $400 gift to support our critical work at a time when it’s most needed. 

All gifts from new donors to Horizons, up to $40,000, will be matched by a special challenge from Ambassador James C. Hormel and Michael Nguyen!

Thank you to our 40th Anniversary Partners!
