The Donor Engagement grantmaking program, a cornerstone of Horizons Foundation's mission, aims to empower LGBTQ organizations by providing critical financial support for their fundraising activities. Donor Engagement grants are available to qualifying LGBTQ organizations with an annual budget of over $1 million based within the nine counties of the SF Bay Area. With a maximum award of $5,000, the LGBTQ Donor Engagement Program exists to support annual fundraising events, for example, an annual fundraising gala. However, if an organization does not have an annual fundraising event, it may be eligible for efforts that engage donors through alternative events related to donor cultivation and stewardship.

The 2024 Fall Donor Engagement RFP open in July 2024 for events taking place from August through December. Learn more.
