Join Our Community


To further our goals of fostering an engaged community of philanthropists and facilitating discussion and learning opportunities for foundation staff members and trustees, Funders for LGBTQ Issues organizes symposiums on specific issues of current relevance to grantmakers. These one day gatherings are limited to a small group of participants for a focused, guided discussion. Audio and resources related to the symposiums are later uploaded to our website. See below for information and resources from our symposiums to date.
