Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Gamma Mu Foundation's vision is to help create an environment that promotes health, acceptance, and pride in the LGBT community and a more accepting and inclusive environment for people regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We will seek to increase bequests and contributions from corporate donors to fund for our mission.

The Foundation is working on a long term plan as a result of a facilitated review of the history and current activities of the organization.

The Foundation is in a very healthy financial position, with a strong, loyal, donor base.

Many of the planned updates are being implemented on an ongoing basis. Many action tasks are being assigned to active board members to insure success.

Policies and processes
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
