The board of directors tasked with bringing this vision to life consists of individuals with distinguished and diverse backgrounds in the fields of academia, art, finance, fundraising, LGBTQ civil rights, philanthropy, public affairs, urban planning, and more.

Several team members played pivotal roles in establishing and growing the LGBT Community Center, the New York City AIDS Memorial, and the designation of the Stonewall Inn and Christopher Street Park as the U.S.’s first National Monument designated for an LGBTQ historic site. These leaders have decades of experience creating, running and fundraising for large nonprofit organizations.
