State of Funding: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Grantmaking in Minnesota

Source(s): 
Funders for LGBTQ Issues

This report shows that U.S. foundations awarded nearly $1.3 million in 2007 to LGBTQ organizations and programs throughout Minnesota; 83 percent of this giving came from foundations based inside the state. It also found that nearly half of the Minnesota organizations that responded to our study have annual budgets of $100,000 or less and operate with two or fewer paid staff members. These groups rely more on support from foundations and individuals, and less on government and corporate sources. A number of opportunities exist for foundations to invest in LGBTQ communities throughout Minnesota. We hope this report informs your work and inspires grantmaking to LGBTQ communities.
