Please join us for a meeting of the LGBTQ Funders Working Group. At this meeting we'll have the opportunity to get an update and discuss what's next for the BEtter OUTcomes initiative, we'll share LBGTQ news and policy updates, we'll reflect on MCF's public policy retreat on human and civil rights, and we'll start looking ahead to a 2019 MCF working group conference session and other new activities on the horizon.

The LGBTQ Funders Working Group is focused on: 

  • Engaging in peer learning and networking to develop relationships, knowledge, and best practices that support intentional, LGBTQ-inclusive grantmaking practices
  • Raising awareness about LGBTQ issues among other grantmakers
  • Developing public policy and systems change reform recommendations that strengthen the LGBTQ community and providing an LGBTQ lens on MCF’s existing public policy work
  • Exploring joint action to increase philanthropic investments in the LGBTQ community 

This working group is for MCF members interested in LGBTQ issues. Working group members do not need to identify as LGBTQ to participate; allies are welcome. This is a MCF member-only meeting.
