Andrew Wallace

Research & Communications Associate

Andrew joined Funders for LGBTQ Issues in September 2016 as the Research and Communications Associate, where he plays a crucial role in managing and maintaining Funders for LGBTQ Issues’ extensive database of LGBTQ grants and uses data to help articulate the ways in which LGBTQ communities are affected by a range of grantmaking priorities. He also supports the organization’s communications strategy and events schedule.

Prior to joining Funders, Andrew was a Program Manager at StoryCorps where he oversaw the launch of OutLoud, an initiative dedicated to documenting and amplifying the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people across the United States. He worked with LGBTQ communities and organizations across the United States to record and archive hundreds of intimate interviews with members of the LGBTQ community. He worked closely with a talented team of archivist and facilitators to manage a significant collection of queer interviews that is today housed at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. He believes deeply in the power of listening and continues to be interested in the capacity of oral history to amplify unheard voices and build community.
