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.
