Stonewall’s fund partners care deeply about advocacy and preserving our rights as a community. This is exemplified in the top three funded organizations from our DAFs in 2018, as they are all committed to the preservation of LGBTQ civil rights and protecting vulnerable populations:

#3The National LGBTQ Task Force Foundation: We’re building a future where everyone is free to be themselves in every aspect of their lives. Today, despite all the progress we’ve made to end discrimination, millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives: in housing, employment, healthcare, retirement, and basic human rights. These barriers must go. That’s why the Task Force is training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation to deliver a world where you can be you. 

#2SAGE: For 40-plus years, SAGE has worked tirelessly on behalf of LGBT older people. Building off the momentum of the Stonewall uprising and the emerging LGBT civil rights movement, a group of activists came together to ensure that LGBT older people could age with respect and dignity... It’s a movement of loving, caring activists dedicated to providing advocacy, services, and support to older members of the LGBT community.

#1 ACLU Foundation: For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country. Whether it’s achieving full equality for LGBT people … preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach.

Interested in funding more Advocacy work? These amazing orgs are also making real change on relatively small operating budgets:

New York Transgender Advocacy Group - The New York Transgender Advocacy Group is a trans-led organization. Our mission is to advocate for more inclusive gender-based policies that benefit transgender and gender non-conforming/non-binary (TGNCNB) individuals through building community leaders, educating practitioners, and influencing policy makers.

Immigration Equality, Inc. - Immigration Equality is the nation's leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization. We represent and advocate for people from around the world fleeing violence, abuse, and persecution because of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status.
