2008 Grants

In 2008, the Gill Foundation awarded $10 million in grants to hundreds of non-profit 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. Click here to see grants made by the Gill Foundation in 2008.

Colorado is our home, so the remaining 20 percent of our funding went 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. Click here to see grants made by the Gay & Lesbian Fund in 2008.

Over the course of its 15 year history, the Gill Foundation has awarded over $96 million in grants, including $22 million through the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado, to nonprofit organizations. Click here to see our 15 Year Grant History.
