Financial support

Here we acknowledge with gratitude all those who have given generously to Many Voices. It is only with our fearless family of donors that Many Voices can offer the powerful resources in this website; the mentoring, coaching and educational events for pastors and members of Black churches; the public work to make clear the extent of Black church support for LGBT justice.

Your dollars go a long way because so many of those who are bringing about this movement are volunteering their time and expertise.


We’re grateful to our foundation partners for their generosity in helping Many Voices get to this point and their continuing commitment as we move forward:

Arcus Foundation

E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation

Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund

H. van Ameringen Foundation
