Ways to Give

With four decades of experience and relationships with our community's changemakers, we are experts on LGBTQ issues in the SF Bay Area and the premier resource to help inform charitable giving in our community.

You share our vision for a world where all LGBTQ people live freely and fully — where LGBTQ elders live with dignity, where LGBTQ immigrants feel safe, where LGBTQ youth can thrive, and so much more.

To advance this vision we share, we offer individualized advising and flexible solutions for all types of gifts. Horizons is your partner in philanthropy.

​Giving to Horizons

Donations directly to the foundation make it possible for Horizons to invest in LGBTQ organizations, now and forever. Our Visionary, Leadership, Loyalty, Legacy, and Friends Circles recognize donors at various levels and for different types of gifts.

Donor-Advised Funds

A Horizons donor-advised fund is a flexible, convenient account for all your charitable giving, within and outside the LGBTQ community, and offers potential tax benefits. We are one of the only donor-advised fund providers that is of, by, and for LGBTQ people.

Legacies of Pride

We promote legacy gifts to, for example, our LGBTQ Community Endowment Fund, which will support our community for generations to come. By making a bequest through your will or trust, you can help meet our community's needs that we can't begin to imagine today.
