Overlooked, Underserved, and Missing: How to mainstream LGBTQ funding and increase equitable giving (PEAK Florida)

Approximately 18 million LGBTQ adults live in the United States, but for every $100 awarded by U.S. foundations, only 28 cents support LGBTQ issues. Due to stigma and discrimination, LGBTQ people are more likely to experience poverty, homelessness, illness, and violence and are at higher risk for committing suicide.

Join PEAK Florida and a panel of Equality Florida staff and funders to discuss solutions, tools, and best grantmaking practices and policies that minimize bias, promote inclusion, and increase LGBTQ equitable giving within your institution.
