If you’re an LGBTQ person, chances are very good you’ve contributed to the progress of our movement and the building of LGBTQ communities. Maybe you’ve been a volunteer or joined a rally. Maybe you've made a difference simply by being out at your job. Chances are good, too, that you’ve donated financially, whether that’s through regular giving to LGBTQ organizations or tossing a few dollars into a donation bucket now and then.
It’s precisely that generosity that’s made the LGBTQ movement and the LGBTQ community possible. That’s been true in Horizons’ home, the San Francisco Bay Area, and across the country.
For many of us, our single greatest chance to contribute financially to the LGBTQ community comes through our estates. That's because many people tend, over their lifetimes, to accumulate more in total wealth than they’ve ever had in annual income.
When you make a bequest or other form of estate gift to our community, you join a wider movement determined to meet the needs, secure the rights, and celebrate the lives of LGBTQ people. You become an author of our history. If you choose to include Horizons’ LGBTQ Community Endowment Fund in your plans, your generosity will be felt for generations to come. Your commitment and leadership can serve as powerful inspiration to others.
For many years, Horizons has worked with generous individuals and couples to support the LGBTQ community through their estates in ways that reflect their personal values and priorities. We’ve helped hundreds of people to:
- Provide for specific nonprofit organizations that they care about
- Dedicate gifts to a particular area of interest, such as the arts or LGBTQ youth
- Ensure our community’s long-term future by supporting the LGBTQ Community Endowment Fund
Whatever your goals, Horizons is committed to helping you create a meaningful legacy — both for you and our community.
