Donor-Advised Funds for the LGBTQ Community

A Horizons donor-advised fund is a flexible account for all your charitable giving, within and outside the LGBTQ community. Open a donor-advised fund with an initial gift as small as $5,000, and easily make grant recommendations throughout your lifetime and even beyond.

Horizons is one of the only donor-advised fund providers in the country — and the only one in California — that is of, by, and for LGBTQ people. By holding your fund here, you make a statement about what you stand for.

Over 150 donor advisors at Horizons share a commitment to creating a world where all people live freely and fully.
