Gill Foundation

In Tim’s Own Words

In an interview with 5280 Magazine, Tim Gill reflects on the past 25 years of the Gill Foundation and the ongoing fight for LGBT equality.

Advancing LGBT Equality
For Over

25 Years

Over the past 25 years, the Gill Foundation’s investments have won hard-fought protections for LGBT people across America. We remain steadfast in our mission to secure equal opportunity for all Americans.

Spotlight on Grantees

  • Freedom for All Americans Education Fund

    No one should be treated unfairly because of who they are or who they love, but in a majority of states, LGBT Americans are not fully protected from discrimination. Freedom for All Americans Education Fund is working to ensure that every LGBT person is free to earn a living, provide a home for their family, and build a better life in their community—without living in fear of discrimination.

  • National Center for Transgender Equality

    The National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) creates life-saving change for transgender Americans. Their policy and public education work ensures that transgender people are able to get jobs free from discrimination, to update their identity documents to reflect who they are, to access the healthcare they need to thrive, and to be treated with dignity and respect.

  • National Center for Lesbian Rights

    Few practices hurt LGBT youth more than attempts to change their sexual orientation or gender identity through the harmful practice of conversion therapy. That’s why the National Center for Lesbian Rights has been working across the country to protect LGBT children and young people, fighting in courtrooms to ensure their safety, and raising awareness about the serious harms caused by these dangerous practices.

Fund With Us

We seek other donors, philanthropists and funders to work side by side with us to secure full equality.
