GLAD awarded $1 Million gift from MacKenzie Scott’s Yield Giving open call 

We are thrilled to announce that GLAD is the recipient of a $1 million grant from Yield Giving, the philanthropic fund established by MacKenzie Scott.  

Over 6,000 organizations from across the U.S. applied as part of this year’s open call from Yield Giving – GLAD was one of 361 grantees. Several of our partners in the LGTBQ+ and legal advocacy movements are on the grantee list, including the ACLU of Alabama, Immigration Equality, OutFront Minnesota, Lawyers for Civil Rights, and Gender Justice. Congratulations to all grantees! 

This gift demonstrates an understanding within the broader community of this pivotal moment in the movement for LGBTQ+ rights and equality, as well as confidence in the ability of GLAD to address it through litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education.  

The grant is particularly meaningful as we undertake the search for GLAD’s new Executive Director, who will guide our next phase in the enduring fight for justice for the LGBTQ+ community and people with HIV.
