What We Do
ASTRAEA IS SHAPING THE NEXT WAVES OF PHILANTHROPY Our reach extends beyond direct grantmaking. A core tenet of our work includes leveraging resources and opportunities where they are most needed to abolish the inequities LGBTQI people experience around the world. Astraea engages in education, advocacy and collaboration to build a strong, cohesive, well-informed community of grantees, donors and funders. We work to build relationships among social justice agents to increase our shared resources and knowledge.
