Legacies of Pride

You can create your own Legacy of Pride with Horizons and help secure the future of the LGBTQ community.

The LGBTQ community has made great strides since 1980, when Horizons was founded as the world's first community foundation of, by, and for LGBTQ people. At the same time, LGBTQ people still face major challenges, including discrimination, poorer health outcomes, and poverty, with even greater need among youth and elders, transgender people, LGBTQ communities of color, and many more. 

We also know that we can't predict our community's future needs, a reality painfully underscored by the nation’s 45th presidency and the devastating and sudden impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But we do know that Horizons will always be here to advance a world where all LGBTQ people live freely and fully. By including Horizons in your charitable estate plans, you can ensure the foundation’s capacity to support all parts of our community — to be there whenever and wherever the need is greatest. 

Your legacy giving plan — whatever it is — will be among your lasting legacies, just as it is for all of us. Your legacy gifts, combined with those of thousands of LGBTQ people and our allies, can transform our community's future. We hope you'll join us.
