Assets Under Management

Assets under management matter for a foundation, because it is ultimately from those assets that grants can be made to support the community. Horizons’ assets include the LGBTQ Community Endowment Fund, our 100+ donor-advised funds, and various other assets. Over time, Horizons’ assets have grown to more than $20 million and we’ve registered significant growth in recent years.

Grantmaking: Supporting the Community

Our purpose in increasing assets is to fund programs and grants to nonprofits that advocate for and serve LGBTQ people. The exact amount of grantmaking by Horizons Foundation in any given year varies because grant funds are both generated by and granted out through multiple vehicles. Over the past five years, the foundation’s total grantmaking has been in the range of $2 million to just under $2.6 million each year. As the LGBTQ Community Endowment Fund and other assets continue to grow, our level of grantmaking will increase proportionately.


Horizons carefully stewards our resources and works to maximize the amount that directly supports the LGBTQ community, while still investing sufficiently in the foundation to ensure our continued strength and future growth. Comparable charts for previous years’ expenditures can be found in our annual reports.
