Community Grants Application Opens May 16

Pride Foundation’s community grants program invests in organizations, projects, programs, innovative ideas, and/or strategies that align with our priorities—expanding opportunities and advancing full equality for LGBTQ communities in the Northwest.

While LGBTQ equality has improved in recent years, there is still ongoing systemic discrimination to address while access to opportunities for LGBTQ youth, adults, seniors and our families, especially for those who remain invisible are limited. Therefore, we seek projects and/or programs that provide opportunities, services, advocacy, and/or education efforts that address the needs of LGBTQ people who are invisible and/or vulnerable because economic, racial, gender, social, geographic, or political disenfranchised and/or HIV status.

For example, past projects have addressed issues of expanding health care access for those in rural/remote locations; developing training and public education campaigns; providing social services for LGBTQ seniors, youth, violence survivors, those with mental health or substance use problems; addressing housing instability and food insecurity; HIV prevention/intervention; justice system engagement; advancing and/or maintaining legal rights; and/or creating accessible LGBTQ arts and culture experiences.
