A project of the Victory Fund, the Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute is a "non-partisan" "501(c)(3)" charitable organization "dedicated to increasing the overall leadership potential of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community." The Institute "does not engage in lobbying. Its advocacy work is limited to training and developing LGBT leaders." [1]

The Victory Institute "expanded its footprint in 2013 to serve LGBT communities in developing countries, partnering with the U.S. Agency for International Development in a groundbreaking program to deliver programming in Colombia, Peru and Serbia." [2] The International LGBT Leadership Conference is a project of the Victory Institute.

Onward Together

Hillary Clinton's PAC Onward Together gave a direct grant to Victory Institute.[3]

In addition to our official partners, we’ve also given direct grants to organizations doing work that we believe in, particularly in urgent moments. These grantees include EMILY’s List, APIA Vote, National Redistricting Foundation, the Victory Institute, Greater Wisconsin, and more.


"The Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute works to achieve full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people by building, supporting, and advancing a diverse network of LGBT public leaders.

Through its training and professional development programs, the Victory Institute assists hundreds of individuals who go on to influential careers in politics, government, business and advocacy each year. Many of the Victory Institute’s trainees join the more than 1,000 openly LGBT elected and appointed officials now serving around the world. Founded in 1993, the Victory Institute is a non-partisan, tax-exempt educational and research organization."[4]
