ILGA-Europe continues our needs assessment work in partnership with Strength in Numbers to make a case to both better align and increase funding for the work of LGBTI organisations in Europe and Central Asia.The first funding needs assessment was done in 2017 with the intention to shine a light on the activities undertaken by LGBTI organisations, particularly those that are underfunded compared to the importance that organisations give to them. The 2021 needs assessment continues this work, with additional intentions to detect changes in the funding landscape, as well as collect additional data about the lived realities of LGBTI activists and organisations operating in the context of COVID-19, and in many countries, anti-LGBTI and/or anti-gender rhetoric, threats and attacks. Ultimately, ILGA-Europe monitors the funding landscape with an eye to moving towards sustainability for LGBTI organisations, ensuring LGBTI people on the ground can access the services they need and are free from discrimination.Where sufficient data are available, it highlights disparities between regions, so donors and activists can be aware of gaps in resources identified by LGBTI activists. ILGA-Europe would like to see the report used as a tool to continue conversations between donors and movements to increase the funding available and align the priorities of donors with the needs and opportunities experienced by LGBTI movements. The report is also intended to reach LGBTI organisations, including ILGA-Europe members, with a view to enhancing our collective understanding of how funding can support the work of our movements.

This final report in the series, LGBT Well-Being at the Intersection of Race, uses data from the 2012-2017 Gallup Survey and the Generations/Transpop studies to assess whether LGBT people of color (POC) differ from White LGBT people on several areas of health and socioeconomic well-being. We find that more LGBT people of color report economic instability compared to White LGBT people on many indicators. Additionally, disparities for POC LGBT adults persist in the health domain, except for measures of depression where more White LGBT adults report having depression compared with POC LGBT adults. Further, more women of color who identify as LGBT reported living in a low-income household, and experiencing unemployment and food insecurity compared to all other groups. We also found differences in outcomes among LGBT POC on some economic and health indicators. Overall, the series of papers demonstrate that the relationship between race and LGBT status is a complicated one that differs by outcome and racialized group. Regardless of these complexities, the data point to the need for social and policy interventions that address economic and health disparities along racial, gender and LGBT statuses, separately and at their intersection.
LGBTQ+ Alliance Fund;
The LGBTQ+ Alliance Fund was formed in 1999 when the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona applied for and was awarded a two-year, $100,000 challenge grant from the National Lesbian and Gay Community Funding Partnership.The Fund was established to expand funding opportunities and resources for LGBTQ+ organizations in Tucson and rural southern Arizona (Pima, Cochise and Santa Cruz counties) and to create linkages with straight allies.Since 1999, the LGBTQ+ Alliance Fund has awarded $1,025,957 to 72 organizations in support of Southern Arizona's LGBTQ+ programs and initiatives.
The Rainbow Resources report, produced by LGBTIQ+ community-led funders Aurora and GiveOUT, aims to increase understanding of the funding needs of LGBTIQ+ communities in Australia - one of our most wonderful, yet under-resourced, populations.Drawing on a sector-wide survey, interviews with LGBTIQ+ community leaders, and a national literature review, this ground-breaking report explores the issues impacting LGBTIQ+ communities in Australia today, what the sector working on these issues looks like, and the pivotal role it plays.
Funders for LGBTQ Issues;
The 2019-2020 Resource Tracking Report: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Grantmaking by U.S. Foundations (2022) explores the scope and character of U.S. foundation funding for LGBTQ communities and issues in calendar years 2019-2020. This 18th edition of the tracking report represents the next iteration of work from Funders for LGBTQ Issues in our ongoing effort to document the scale of philanthropic support for LGBTQ communities and issues.The report finds that foundation funding for LGBTQ communities and issues has fallen since its record high in 2018, totaling $193 million in 2019 and $201 million in 2020. This is concerning, as it comes at a time when, according to Giving USA, overall foundation support has soared. For every $100 awarded by U.S. foundations in 2020, only 23 cents specifically supported LGBTQ communities and issues.
Community Leadership, Education, and Research (CLEAR) Institute;
To date, very little research has been conducted on LGBTQ+ nonprofits (Meyer, Dale, & Willis, 2021; Surfus, 2013) and how they function. For example, in a recent study of academic literature, Meyer et al. (2021) discovered only 40 academic articles published within the last 46 years on various LGBTQ+ issues and how they intersect withnonprofits. Just over 25% of these articles were published in the last five years. Furthermore, before 2000, most articles only focused on HIV/AIDS. Therefore, many unknowns exist regarding LGBTQ+ nonprofits and how they function as entities.As a certified LGBT Business Enterprise (LGBTBE®) through the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Supplier Diversity Initiative, IPM Advancement has a passion and history of working with LGBTQ+ nonprofits. With 2-5% of the general population of every state identifying as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, we felt there was a need to better understand how these organizations operate and identify issues that would be helpful to share with these organizations, LGBTQ+ donors, policymakers, and other stakeholders concerned with the quality of life for members of the LBGTQ community.The report is designed to better understand the number of nonprofit organizations that are working on LGBTQ+ and equality issues nationwide, and where those organizations have impact. The report offers unique insights into organization growth, trends, concerns and the outlook for LGBTQ+ nonprofits related to philanthropic giving. Of particular interest is how engagement with LGBTQ+ nonprofits has changed since the 2015 marriage equality ruling.

FRIDA The Young Feminist Fund;
This collection of stories explores the diverse realities of Roma women, girls and LGBTQI+ people, as well as the realities of activists who advocate for change on the frontlines in the Southeast Europe region. Building on 19 semi-structured interviews with activists conducted between 2018 and 2022, this research also examines the intersectional nature of the challenges that Roma girls, women and LGBTQI+ youth face in their specific contexts, through the prism of activists who have been tailoring their approaches to address and advocate for these issues.

It is designed to act as a guide for facilitators to frame and engage in conversations and activities around healthy masculinities. The toolkit is also available in Spanish.
This issue brief discusses the unique challenges faced by LGBTQIA+ farmworkers and the importance of health centers recognizing and addressing these challenges in order to provide high-quality care.There is a common misconception that few or no lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and all sexually and gender diverse (LGBTQIA+) people exist within the farmworker community. As a result, the health care needs of LGBTQIA+ farmworkers are often overlooked. It is important for health centers to recognize and address the unique challenges faced by LGBTQIA+ farmworkers in order to provide high-quality care to this marginalized population.

Four Corners: TNB Health Research Advisory Network;
Esta guía describe las mejores prácticas para la investigación participativa basada en la comunidad (CBPR, por sus siglas en inglés) con comunidades transgénero y no binarias (TNB, por sus siglas en inglés). Esperamos que sea un recurso para las personas involucradas o interesadas en la investigación de la salud en la comunidad TNB y que haga que la CBPR sea accesible, factible y convincente. Anticipamos que les lectores de esta guía tendrán diferentes identidades, experiencias y conocimientos, además de comprender y estar familiarizades con las investigaciones y las comunidades TNB. Es importante reconocer explícitamente que hay personas TNB de diversos orígenes culturales/lingüísticos que ya están haciendo este trabajo y evitar reforzar suposiciones de que les investigadores no son TNB, negres, indígenas, personas racializadas (BIPOC, por sus siglas en inglés), o BICOP TNB. Aunque creemos que las mejores personas para iniciar y llevar a cabo la CBPR sobre la salud en la comunidad TNB son las personas TNB, también reconocemos que la mayoría de las personas involucradas en la investigación sobre salud en la comunidad TNB no son ellas mismas TNB. Esta guía está diseñada para ofrecer una comprensión a todo el público. Nuestra meta es proporcionar una visión general de los temas que consideramos importantes y las mejores prácticas para desarrollar y llevar a cabo la investigación en colaboración con las comunidades TNB
