Non-Profit Leader Leaves Quite A Legacy

Matt Foreman Leaving Task Force

Big changes at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Executive Director Matt Foreman announced that he’ll leave the non-profit for the San Francisco-based Evelyn & Walter Haas, Jr. Fund.

From The Bilerico Project:

[Foreman] will step down in April to lead the Gay & Lesbian Program at the Evelyn & Walter Haas, Jr. Fund. Foreman has led the Task Force for five years and helped propel the organization to national prominence as an outspoken and unwavering advocate of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights.

The Haas, Jr. Fund, located in San Francisco, provides more grant support to LGBT organizations than any non-gay-identified foundation in the nation.

Task Force co-chair Matt Sexton highlights some of Foreman’s main accomplishments: “Our staff grew to 54 full-time positions and our budget more than doubled to nearly $10 million.”
