The AMKRF collaborates with funders across the country to leverage resources for nonprofit and grassroots organizations that address systemic change and advance LGBTQ rights, racial justice, and combat anti-Semitism. Our collaborations are strategic and are intended to magnify the impact of individual gifts. We collaborate with the following organizations:
Out in the South Initiative and
Funders for LGBTQ Issues, New York City
Out in the South is a five-year initiative to increase the scale and impact of foundation funding for LGBTQ communities in the U.S. South. Core strategies include: 1) the Out in the South Fund which provides planning grants, matching funds, and technical assistance to stimulate the creation and growth of local LGBTQ funds; 2) funder briefings, trainings, research and materials; and 3) building a network of funders committed to strengthening LGBTQ communities in the South.
