Resilience & Resolve

July 2020 – June 2021
Annual Report

From the Board Co-Chairs and President

As we look back at the time covered in this annual report, if one thing stands out, it’s how the LGBTQ community immediately responded to the COVID-19 pandemic – and how we never stopped. Right when the pandemic started, Horizons Foundation – working hand in hand with the community we serve – jumped to action. Bay Area LGBTQ nonprofits, with the support of over $1 million in emergency funding from Horizons, immediately persevered through new challenges, adapted to new realities, and innovated new solutions.

But perhaps even more remarkable than this initial response is what happened next. In the many months since March 2020, the response from the LGBTQ community hasn’t slowed; it was never simply “one and done.” Instead, despite our collective exhaustion, so long as the challenges of the pandemic persisted, so, too, did the nonprofits working to solve them – and the generous donors lending their support.

Secure our community's future

It is this enduring dedication we aim to highlight in this annual report. Over the reporting period – from July 2020 to June 2021 – the foundation doubled down on its pandemic response: Horizons formed the LGBTQ Resilience and Recovery Fund to offer additional, highly targeted grant support; convened grassroots leaders to chart the path forward; connected LGBTQ donors to ways to help in the ongoing pandemic; and supported hundreds of nonprofits nationwide in the most successful Give OUT Day to date. In short, we worked in partnership with the LGBTQ community to continue our pandemic response with Resilience and Resolve, the fitting theme of this annual report.

While our pandemic response was a major focus, it took place in the context of the persistent murder of transgender women of color and a major reckoning with race in America, as the police murder of George Floyd, among others, shook the nation and the world. Horizons awarded grants explicitly focused on racial justice and continued the hard yet critical internal work around diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in every aspect of the foundation and our work – a key component of our new strategic plan. We know that as a foundation we have so much work to do – this is only the beginning. 

Amidst these challenges, Horizons responded not only through our COVID grants, but also by granting out more than $6 million in total – more than ever before. We are proud to have helped bring such resources to our community at a time of such great need. As we move into 2022, there remain many challenges, but guided by the wisdom of grassroots leaders, and bolstered by the generosity of supporters like you, we will meet these challenges – indeed, with Resilience and Resolve.

In community and with gratitude,

Dipti Ghosh

Our Recent Impact

With the support of an emergency COVID grant from Horizons, Theatre Rhinoceros quickly adapted to circumstances by moving online and continuing to do what they do best: facilitating nourishing experiences for queer artists and audiences alike.

In late September 2021, the Department of Veterans Affairs clarified that LGBTQ veterans discharged under Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy are eligible for full VA benefits. The team at Swords to Plowshares shares about the effects of this clarification in policy and their LGBTQ work in general.

LGBTQ Resilience and Recovery Fund Grants

After awarding over $1 million in emergency funding to Bay Area LGBTQ nonprofits in 2020, Horizons awarded an additional quarter million dollars in targeted support to the most underserved in the LGBTQ community, including people of color, transgender people, youth, elders, and immigrants and asylees. Horizons also prioritized LGBTQ Asians and Pacific Islanders because of the terrible increase in violence and its clear connection to the pandemic. Learn more.
