Celebrating Horizons’ 40th Anniversary

Horizons 40th Anniversary

For 40 extraordinary years, visionary ideas have shined bright at Horizons.

Horizons' early leaders

  • The foundation itself was a visionary idea: the world’s first community foundation of, by, and for all LGBTQ people.
  • Our over $44 million in grantmaking has included early funding for pioneering ideas that have transformed the LGBTQ movement, like awarding the first foundation grant to an AIDS service provider.
  • We look boldly into the future, actively building the LGBTQ Community Endowment Fund to support our community for generations to come.

In 2020, our vision is still 20/20. We see, crystal clear, a world where all LGBTQ people live freely and fully.

Join us in celebration of our Ruby Anniversary.
