Astraea supports lesbian, trans, intersex and LGBTQI groups that promote racial, economic, and gender justice. We work with organizers that are mobilizing communities to challenge oppression and claim rights. We fund groups in the United States, primarily led by LGBTQI people of color, and groups across the globe. We strengthen LGBTQI groups by providing flexible general support grants ranging from $5,000 to $30,000 per year. We build long-term partnerships with organizations because we know that social change takes time.

Astraea is a public foundation that raises funds every year for our grantmaking activities. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide grants to all groups that meet our criteria. We make decisions based on our values and priorities, as well as an analysis of the funding landscape to determine where Astraea’s support can be most impactful.
