Arcus Foundation
Organisation
 
The Arcus Foundation is a leading global foundation dedicated to the idea that people can live in harmony with one another and the natural world. Arcus believes that respect for diversity among peoples and in nature is essential to a positive future for our planet and all its inhabitants. We work with experts and advocates for change to ensure that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and our fellow apes thrive in a world where social and environmental justice are a reality.
 
The Arcus Foundation grantees work in more than 30 countries around the world, and affect millions of lives. In 2014, 48 grants totaling more than $10 million were awarded to organizations working to protect the great apes, and 178 grants totaling more than $18 million were awarded to organizations working to advance social justice for LGBT people around the world.
 
Arcus’ funding strategy targets general operating support, project support for specific programs, public policy and research, capital projects and capacity building, in two main areas of focus: social justice and great apes conservation. We do not make grants to individuals, or for scholarships, lobbying purposes, political campaigns, film production, or medical research.
 
The Arcus Foundation requires all organizations seeking funding to have in place a board-approved Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy that specifically includes and lists sexual orientation and gender identity, and requires compliance with all other applicable federal and local EEO laws.
