"For the LGBTQ+ community, our unique needs and experiences, culture, and challenges have yet to be widely recognized institutions. The economic barriers we face — discrimination, non-inclusive benefits, lack of workplace protections, prejudice, and erasure— diminish our path toward upward mobility as individuals and as a community. The OPEN Foundation is giving our community the strength, support, and development we need to overcome these barriers."


OPEN Foundation needs your support to pilot our programs. Contact Heidi Duss to start the conversation. 

OPEN Foundation is fiscally sponsored by the Center for Community Stewardship (C4CS), allowing it to accept tax-deductible donations through C4CS’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit status.
