On behalf of Funders for LGBTQ Issues, author Tony Bowen penned a report documenting 40 years of LGBTQ philanthropy, just released. Since 1982, when 10 foundations provided $215,000 for LGBTQ issues, Funders for LGBTQ Issues has been advocating within philanthropy for increased resources for LGBTQ communities. Funding Exchange Network Funds have proudly stood with Funders for LGBTQ Issues throughout its history. As this report documents, FEX funds have provided nearly $12 million in funding through its activist-led grantmaking panels and additional support through our donor-advised grantmaking.
Congratulations to our colleagues at Funders for LGBTQ Issues for releasing this seminal report, and best wishes for continued success. Read the entire report here.
