Human Rights Campaign Foundation: Build Better, More Inclusive Communities for LGBTQ+ People
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is fighting for a world where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people are truly equal — from the board room to the homeroom, from the corner store to the ER, and in every single community we call home.
To make this world a reality, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation engages with people across almost every aspect of everyday life. We work with educators, parents, people of faith, LGBTQ youth, corporate leaders and global innovators to educate, to empower and to make connections that will help build a better future for all.
There’s no one with a greater stake in that future than our young people, which is why we’re working to make sure that LGBTQ youth and their peers have the support they need to truly thrive. Through innovative training and consultation with schools, child welfare agencies and others, HRC’s Children, Youth and Families Program creates welcoming and affirming environments for LGBTQ prospective parents, LGBTQ-led families and LGBTQ youth.
As we strive to build a better future, we’re also working with corporations that are driving much-needed progress right now. Leading American businesses know that protecting employees from discrimination isn’t just the right thing to do — it’s also good for business. Our Corporate Equality Index (CEI) is helping national and international corporations reach for benchmarks for inclusion and build workplaces where every person knows they are truly welcome.
These corporate best practices propelled by the CEI are moving equality forward — not just in the U.S., but around the world. In addition to our corporate partnerships, our HRC Global Program works with advocates on the ground who are engaging in life-saving work to ensure they have the tools and resources they need. We’re also shining a bright light on dangerous injustices facing our international community.
We do all this — and more. Our work is not done until every LGBTQ person is truly equal. And that’s why we need your help. Support from donors through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC#11893) and workplace giving campaigns helps us keep moving our community forward.
Support the Human Rights Campaign Foundation through your employee giving program:
As a donor, you can support the Human Rights Campaign Foundation by donating to them through your employer’s workplace giving program (CFC#11893 if you’re a military or federal employee participating in the Combined Federal Campaign). Payroll pledges made through employer-sponsored charitable giving programs represent a cost effective and near effortless way to support your favorite charities.
As the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s workplace giving partner, America’s Charities can help your company design and implement a program centered on supporting their work – through workplace giving campaigns, employee fundraising, cause-focused signature programs, volunteerism, donation drives, matching gifts, Dollars-for-Doers, In-Kind Giving and other employee engagement and philanthropic initiatives.
