Expanding Horizons

July 2022 – June 2023
Annual Report

From the Board Co-Chairs and President

We are proud to share with you Horizons Foundation’s annual report for the most recent fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2023. It’s a once-a-year opportunity to offer an overview of some of the foundation’s work and impact – and to share it with you, our Horizons family and community. 

We chose the title “Expanding Horizons” for several reasons. For one, many of us expanded our own horizons during this period, emerging from our pandemic homes and edging back into public life and community. 

Yet that’s only part of why we chose this title. Horizons Foundation’s own reach and impact spread to every part of the Bay Area and well beyond. The year covered by this report proved the single largest year of grantmaking in our 43-year history, a total of $7.7 million, triple what it was 10 years ago, and 60% more than five years ago. Also, for the first time, Horizons was ranked as the top grantmaker to the LGBTQ community among all community foundations in the country! 

What we've built

While we take some pride in this, we hope that you take deep pride as well. You have built Horizons Foundation, along with the thousands of people who’ve donated, volunteered, supported, and helped to lead it, some for decades.

It’s because of you that not only did Horizons support more LGBTQ organizations in the Bay Area, but the foundation’s impact went so much further. You might call those our extended Horizons. You likely know already about our nationwide impact through Give OUT Day, the Horizons-sponsored national day of giving for LGBTQ nonprofits, which has raised millions for hundreds of groups in the Bay Area and across the country. In addition, through a special fund, we provided critical funding to stop the spread of hate and extremism in Africa and other parts of the world. 

A final note

As we write this letter, we are acutely conscious of the serious challenges facing our community and the country. It is no hyperbole to say that our community – especially transgender people – is under unprecedented, coordinated attack. And that’s taking place against an alarming national background of deepening division and extremism. 

Our community needs all of us at this increasingly dangerous time. We assure you that Horizons will be there - with you – for our community, now and forever. 

Thank you again for your generous support and all you do for our community. 

In community and in gratitude,

Dipti Ghosh

Grantee Partner Stories

Rights, Faith, and Democracy Collaborative

Even as Horizons’ heart lies in the Bay Area, we have long believed that the Bay Area – and Horizons – can contribute to critical, frontline work in other parts of the country. San Francisco is seen by so many – worldwide – as a symbol and a haven, and we know that support from here can be especially powerful to those living in less LGBTQ-friendly places.

It is in that spirit that Horizons is proud to be the only community foundation in the country to participate in a nationwide funding collaborative, the Rights, Faith, and Democracy Collaborative. This unique collaboration funds the fight against the state-level attacks on both LGBTQ and reproductive rights. The RFDC currently focuses on Georgia, Minnesota, and New Mexico, as well as emergency response grantmaking across the country. The number of states will expand as more foundations join the collaborative.

Grantmaking Breakdown


Fiscal Year 2023 proved another strong year for the foundation’s finances. Our donors continue to invest in Horizons, and their gifts increase the foundation’s impact – and assets – each year. The LGBTQ Community Endowment Fund – dedicated to the long-term strength of the LGBTQ community – stood at $16.8 million, an increase of 65% in the past five years. Of our operating expenses, fully 92% went towards grants and programs, while 8% went towards supporting expenses.

Legacy Circle

By leaving a gift to Horizons in their estate plans, members of our Legacy Circle ensure that Horizons can continue funding innovative, grassroots solutions to our community’s emerging needs – for generations to come.

Legacy Gifts Spotlight: Williams and Hart Rainbow Fund

Pictured: John Williams

Horizons is in the process of receiving what will ultimately be the largest estate gift ever left to the foundation. The donor, John Williams, directed that funds from his estate be added to the “Williams and Hart Rainbow Fund,” a donor-advised fund that he had established. Horizons staff is working with two close friends named by John to advise on future allocations of grant funds. The estate will likely be received over several years and, in the coming years, will make possible significant investments in the LGBTQ community for years to come. We are deeply grateful to John for his wonderful generosity and his commitment to the Bay Area LGBTQ community.
