Over the course of our 17-year history, the Gill Foundation has invested more than $220 million, including $132 million in grants, to support programs and nonprofit organizations across America that share our commitment to equal rights for all Americans.
About 80 percent of the foundation’s work and funding is dedicated to LGBT nonprofits – both national and state organizations that work every day to bring about equality. Funding to these organizations, including those in Colorado, is provided by the Gill Foundation and is on an invitation-only basis. If you represent an LGBT organization, additional information can be found by referencing the pages for Grantseekers Outside of Colorado or Grantseekers Within Colorado.
Colorado is our home, so the remaining 20 percent of our funding goes to nonprofits in the state that improve the quality of life for all residents. Funding for these programs is given in the name of the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado. The Fund is a program of the Gill Foundation. In its 15-year history, the Fund has given out $29 million in grants to high-impact Colorado nonprofits.
