Field Engagement

How we work with the global LGBTI funding field

GPP’s unique approach of developing cutting-edge research, convening key stakeholders, and engaging the leading donor governments, enables us to identify key and emerging issues impacting the resourcing of LGBTI movements and galvanize responses across multiple sets of actors.

Creating Pathways to meet the needs and priorities of LGBTI movements

The LGBTI Pathways Project is a global resource mobilization project coordinated by GPP and ILGA World. The Project will develop credible, reliable, and accurate evidence on the needs, priorities, and funding landscape of the international and regional LGBTI movements. This evidence aims to inform and influence grantmakers to increase the amount and quality of resources directed toward improving the lives of LGBTI persons worldwide.

In service of our goal to cultivate and deepen the knowledge, skills, and capacity of GPP members and other funders, GPP organizes and hosts regional and global donor convenings. These events include conferences, meetings, receptions, and panels focused on global LGBTI issues, produced in collaboration with member and partner organizations. Through these events, GPP engages key public and private funders, donor governments, high net wealth individual donors, wealth advisories, corporate donor leaders, and other thought leaders and partners in support of global LGBTI issues.
