Our Compassion In Action
LGBT People Responding To World Need
"Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds."
~ George Eliot
We are a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and supportive heterosexual humanitarian service agency. Rainbow World Fund’s mission is to promote LGBT philanthropy in the area of world humanitarian relief. RWF provides a united voice, a large visible presence, and a structure to deliver LGBT charitable assistance to the larger world community.
Founded in 2000, the Rainbow World Fund works to help people who suffer from hunger, poverty, disease, oppression and war by raising awareness and funds to support existing relief efforts around the world. RWF accomplishes this by working in the LGBT community educating people about world need. Along with raising our community’s consciousness, RWF raises funds to support humanitarian relief projects. We partner with international relief agencies to support successful existing projects. By doing extensive research, RWF develops partnerships with the most effective organizations that best reflect our guiding principles: Empowerment, Sustainability, Peacemaking, Measurable Impact and Ecological Awareness.
Currently our work focuses on global HIV/AIDS, water development, landmine eradication, and hunger. RWF currently supports projects in Africa, Asia, Central America and the Caribbean.The Rainbow World Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
