Report Reveals APA Gay & Lesbian Organizations Only Receive 0.7% Of Available LGBT Funding

AAPIP’s Queer Justice Fund recently released the report Missed Opportunities: How Organized Philanthropy Can Help Meet the Needs of LGBTQ AAPI Communities. This report calls out the lack of LGBTQ Foundation funding to LGBTQ AAPI communities and highlights the need to fund AAPI ally organizations that engage in LGBT issues and autonomous LGBTQ AAPI organizations: “Missed Opportunities found that funding in 2009 to LGBTQ AAPI communities amounted to barely 0.7 percent of the total amounted granted to all LGBTQ communities and organizations that year.”
