The Other Foundation is an African trust that advances equality and freedom in southern Africa with a particular focus on sexual orientation and gender identity. It gathers support to defend and advance the human rights and social inclusion of homosexual and bisexual women and men, as well as transgender and intersex people in southern Africa – and it gives support to groups in a smart way that enables them to work effectively for lasting change, recognizing the particular dynamics of race, poverty and inequality, sex, national origin, heritage, and politics in our part of the world. It does this by working both as a fundraiser and a grant maker.

Although proposals for innovative work in general will be considered, activities that focus on the following areas will be given priority consideration, as a result of funds having been ring-fenced for these focus areas:

  • Supporting parents of LGBTI people to become public advocacy champions for freedom, equality, and social inclusion of LGBTI people.
  • Engaging religious organizations about the equal human dignity, safety and social inclusion of LGBTI people.
  • Directly and indirectly engaging traditional cultural leaders about the equal human dignity, safety, and social inclusion of LGBTI people.
  • Initiatives that advance the economic empowerment of LGBTI people through the development and inclusion of LGBTI-owned small businesses in corporate supply chains, the development of workplace LGBTI affinity groups as advocacy champions for workplace inclusion and supply chain diversity, work with labor unions to promote diversity and inclusion, and research that helps to improve company practices on diversity and inclusion from an LGBTI perspective.
  • Advocacy campaigns focused on harmful social attitudes or national public policies that discriminate against LGBTI people.
  • Philanthropy development to support activism for LGBTI equality and social inclusion.
  • Initiatives that address discrimination and violence specifically towards lesbian women and transgender and intersex people.

Groups

The Foundation has a particular interest in funding groups that:

  • Start new initiatives or develop new alliances with other LGBTI organizations and/or allies outside the LGBTI movement, especially in campaign-type advocacy;
  • Demonstrates collaboration with other non-LGBTI civil society organizations and/or direct engagement with policymakers and private businesses; and
  • Develop new knowledge by doing primary research or using data that has already been generated.
