Mission Statement

Equity Foundation builds communities that advance the dignity and worth of all people. Equity Foundation promotes philanthropy and positive interaction by granting funds to organizations that work to eradicate prejudice against gender and sexual minorities and people from other diverse communities.

Description

In 1989, a group of gay and lesbian Oregonians, deeply concerned about the hatred, violence, and divisiveness present in the world, created Equity Foundation. The foundation began by providing funding to organizations addressing issues of importance to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered community; to make visible their contributions to society at large. From this premise has grown Equity's larger purpose: to transform the very context of our culture so that future generations can live in a world that recognizes the dignity and worth of all people, and to insure that all people have access to worth.
