The 2016 National LGBT Movement Report, now out, provides a comprehensive and standardized look at LGBT movement's finances across LGBT social-justice organizations that focus on broad LGBT advocacy, issue-specific advocacy, legal advocacy, and research and public education.
The 36 organizations profiled represent 45 percent of the budgets of all LGBT social-justice organizations.
This new report, by the Movement Advancement Project ( MAP ), shows an increase in revenue of 8 percent overall, including 5-percent growth in individual donor revenue from 2014 to 2015. Cumulatively, the 36 participating organizations had combined 2016 budgets of $188.8 million, a 14-percent increase from their 2015 actual combined expenses.
Fundraising status and staff composition ( by race, gender identity, age and more ) are among the factors examined.
Some of the organizations in the report include Transgender Law Center, Point Foundation, Equality California, GLSEN, GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign and Foundation, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
