In 2011, Audrey Cappell founded Foundation for a Just Society in New York City. Foundation for a Just Society is a private foundation that provides grants to left-of-center organizations to advance “LGBTQI” (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex) interests internationally.  The organization provides grants worldwide, including in Central America, West Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and the southeast United States. 
In 2017, Nicky McIntyre, a career operative in left-of-center philanthropy in the United States and Europe, was hired as Chief Executive Officer to run day-to-day operations.  Cappell is now the President of the Felicity House. 
Foundation for a Just Society makes 1, 2, and 3-year general operating grants in annual amounts from $25,000 to $500,000 to local, national, regional, and global organizations. Applications are accepted by invitation only.  Since its formation, the Organization has gifted $95,000,000 to over 75 organizations, purporting to focus on the advancement of women’s rights, specifically charities who focus on advancing the safety, security and acceptance of organizations globally which support LGBT interests.  
Foundation for a Just Society gives grants to organizations including 9to5 Georgia which seeks to turn out voters in historically underprivileged inner-city precincts, including the African Women’s Development Fund, and the Asia Catalyst, the latter of which claims to advance the right to healthcare for marginalized groups in Asia, and a variety of other charities with left-leaning agendas. 
Foundation for a Just Society remains involved with the organizations to which it provides grants. In addition to direct grantmaking, the Organization is active in assisting its grantees by strengthening the organizations through infrastructure development, leadership training and resource exchange. Further, the Foundation for a Just Society assists in structuring and directing communications for its grantees to facilitate greater exposure and publicity for their organizations.
