By supporting Consortium, you help to strengthen the LGBT+ voluntary and community sector in the UK.
Consortium are working to build a long-term, sustainable fund for the LGBT+ sector and our communities. This fund will enable us to support more organisations with vital financial support, working closely with organisations to ensure that the funding they receive meets their needs and the needs of those they work with, and enables them to deliver the truly exceptional specialist services and opportunities which allow LGBT+ people to thrive.
LGBT+ causes receive less than 1% of all donations given to charity. We are determined to change this, and to ensure that donations and funds are reaching those most in need of support. By making a donation to Consortium, you are making a donation to the future of LGBT+ organisations throughout the UK, and supporting their vital role in our communities.
A one-off donation helps us provide support and training to grassroots community organisations across the UK.
£15 could pay for a one-to-one fundraising support session.
£25 could cover travel for LGBT+ volunteers attending a training day.
£50 could pay for room hire for a Trans Network round-table event.
A monthly donation allows us to plan longer-term, knowing we’ll have enough funds to support LGBT+ groups for as long as they need help.
Giving from just £5 per month enables us to offer one-to-one support to LGBT+ groups, bring groups together for discussions and training sessions and advocate for the LGBT+ sector with Government, the NHS and other policy-makers, and to build our future grant-making capacity to offer direct financial support to LGBT+ groups. Your monthly donation will benefit 500+ LGBT+ organisations across the UK.

Philanthropic Gifts and Legacies
A gift today to the LGBT+ Futures Fund could make a huge difference to our communities and our members. Your support could help to increase capacity for specialist support, contribute to the future of LGBT+ grant making to enable LGBT+ groups and organisations to deliver their vital work, or provide wraparound support for groups to adapt and respond to new need.
If you'd like to discuss a larger donation, or are considering a legacy or in-memoriam gift, please contact Helen Bowie, Head of Partnerships and Development. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss any specific interests you may have around supporting the LGBT+ sector. We would be delighted to work with you to ensure your gift has the greatest impact and best reflects your wishes. Thank you.
