Funding Forward is the annual gathering of grantmakers committed to LGBTQ issues organized by the philanthropic serving organization, Funders for LGBTQ Issues. Funding Forward 2022 will focus on building the practical tools grantmakers need to provide what movement leaders have been calling for for years – low barrier, flexible, reliable funding.
This year’s gathering will be a retreat for grantmakers ready to dive into the “how” of meaningful funding for LGBTQ communities. This year, Funding Forward will be a virtual retreat for grantmakers committed to supporting LGBTQ communities and ready to embrace best practices for funding movements. This fully virtual retreat will take place May 24-26. We hope to convene funders for complimentary conversations in-person later in the year when it feels safe to do so.
