The Astraea National Lesbian Action Foundation

ASTRAEA IS A GLOBAL FOUNDATION providing critically needed financial and technical support to lesbian-led, LGBTQI and progressive organizations.

About Astraea Foundation Grants
Astraea was founded in 1977 by a small group of multi-racial, multi-class women in order to address the lack of funding for women-specifically lesbians and women of color. They believed that even the smallest of gestures, when combined, could create, nurture and strengthen significant social change. And they were right.

The Astraea National Lesbian Action Foundation
The first grantmaker to hundreds of organizations, Astraea plays a catalytic role for LGBTQI organizations across the globe. By seeding nascent ideas, groups, and movements, these initial grants have grown into long-term partnerships and coalitions.

This foundation works for social, racial and economic justice in the U.S. and internationally. Our grant-making and philanthropic advocacy programs help lesbians and allied communities challenge oppression and claim their human rights.

In pursuing our mission, we raise and disburse funds to programs and initiatives that directly benefit or serve our diverse constituencies; expand the community of individuals and institutions that support lesbian and trans issues; promote community-building, capacity building, and movement-building; and educate individuals about money, philanthropic giving, and the role of grantmaking in achieving common goals.

Grant Amount: Varies
