Horizons Foundation is best known as a funding organization, especially for emerging issues and cutting-edge programs. We provide financial support both for smaller, upcoming LGBTQ organizations — especially through our Community Issues grants, which are based on recommendations from community panels — as well as core support to larger community institutions. We also make grants through regranting partnerships with larger, non-LGBTQ foundations, bringing more resources to the LGBTQ community and our organizations. Donor-advised and other named funds housed at Horizons further enrich and diversify our grantmaking.

Application processes and guidelines vary by funding program. In all of our grant processes, we strive to keep the application process as clear and transparent as possible. Suggestions about how we can improve our processes are always welcome.

If you have any questions about any processes, guidelines, or forms, contact  us at [email protected]
