International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association Foundation
Founded in 2012, the IGLTA Foundation is the 501(c)3 public charity of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association, which helps to inspire future LGBTQ tourism professionals through education, research and leadership development.
The IGLTA Foundation supports initiatives for industry organizations, leaders and communities to advance LGBT travel around the world.
Primary Areas of Activity
The IGLTA Foundation provides support to industry organizations, leaders and communities to encourage pro-LGBT government actions, business practices, and other travel-related practices that have direct bearing on the physical and emotional well-being of LGBT travelers.
The IGLTA Foundation provides financial support to IGLTA to collect and disseminate information to its members and LGBT travelers about government actions,industry trends, original research, and international developments and activities that have potential to impact LGBT travelers and the businesses that welcome them.
The IGLTA Foundation understands that advancing the safety and well being of LGBT travelers requires providing opportunities to succeed for the next generation of travel professionals committed to serving them and for LGBT-welcoming travel professionals in destinations lacking government or business support for LGBT tourism—especially in nations with governments that are hostile to the LGBT community.
