Grantmaking for Disability: LGBTQ+ Funding

May 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Program

An estimated 3 – 5 million lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people live with disabilities. However, funding for disability rights and justice represented only one cent of every $10 in foundation grants awarded in 2019, and only 28 cents of every $100 awarded by U.S. foundations in 2021 specifically supported LGBTQ communities. As we witness a spike in homophobic, transphobic, and ableist legislation passing across the United States, philanthropy must take action to fund inclusion, rights, and justice for disabled LGBTQIA+ communities.
