Our flagship funding program, Community Issues, provides general-operating and project-specific grants in support of the LGBTQ community in the nine counties of the SF Bay Area, where our community still faces significant challenges, according to our 2018 LGBTQ Community Needs Assessment. Horizons invests in organizations and projects that create a world where all LGBTQ people live freely and fully.
To create the LGBTQ COVID-19 Response Emergency Fund, Horizons needed to reallocate a significant portion of funds originally earmarked for the 2020 Community Issues grant cycle. The remaining funds available for the 2020 Community Issues RFP come from Horizons’ regranting partnerships with other foundations, and these partnerships come with a specific funding focus.
For that reason, the 2020 Community Issues RFP will focus on LGBTQ arts and culture, specifically performance arts in the SF Bay Area by LGBTQ arts organizations or queer artists.
We awarded over $400,000 to our grantee partners in our latest Community Issues cycle.
