Statement of purpose

GALFA is a national philanthropic foundation and one of few organisations that is specifically focused on funding lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) issues in Australia.

GALFA actively works to increase philanthropic support for the Australian LGBTIQ and allied communities through fundraising, grant giving, collaboration and commissioning projects.

GALFA adopts a social change model to our philanthropy and has a dedicated focus on advancing equity for the most disadvantaged LGBTIQ Australians, including advocating for systemic change.

Specific LGBTIQ focus areas to date have been ageing, homelessness and disability; and a new focus area on asylum seekers and refugees is underway.
