Working Groups

Funders for LGBTQ Issues supports communication and networking amongst funders who wish to focus on mobilizing and increasing resources that focus on specific issues in LGBTQ philanthropy. Working Group members participate in a range of activities to share knowledge, participate in learning activities, and coordinate with each other to leverage funding.

Below is a list of our current funder working groups.


The LGBT Majority Working Group
A caucus of funders interested in working together to increase resources for efforts that focus on LGBT people of color, low-income LGBT communities and that build support for LGBT rights in broader communities of color as a strategy to advance LGBT rights.

The Trans/Gender Non-Conforming Working Group
A caucus of funders interested in working together to increase resources for efforts that focus on gender identity and expression.


Working groups are open to staff of grantmaking institutions. For more information, write to workgroups@lgbtfunders.org
