Today, Tomorrow, and into the Future

Community is at the heart of everything we do at Pride Foundation. As the reality of COVID-19 changes from day to day, our community’s response across the Northwest thus far has been to take care of one another—a value that has been at the forefront for decades. 

This is not the first devastating health crisis that the LGBTQ+ community has faced, and we have a history of resilience and care to draw from in this moment. As we do everything we can to keep one another safe, we are also working to build the systems of support we know we’ll need. 

We will continue to update this page as the situation with COVID-19 around the world progresses, and our work at Pride Foundation changes and evolves with it.

For Supporters

This is the moment to boldly invest in response efforts that will support the organizations who make our community and our world beautiful—that work day in and day out to meet the critical needs of LGBTQ+ people and our families, and that move us further along the path toward justice.

For Community Groups and Organizations

All of our efforts in response to COVID-19 focus on one primary goal: to provide support to LGBTQ+ community groups and organizations in the ways they need it most—fast, and with no strings attached.

Logistics for the weeks and months ahead

Since March 6th, all Pride Foundation staff have been working remotely and our Seattle office has been effectively closed. We have implemented a continuity plan to ensure all of our operations are uninterrupted by this situation, and we anticipate minimal impact on the day-to-day functioning of the organization. Our focus is on ensuring stability in our work so that we can respond to the emerging needs of our community.

The best way to get ahold of staff will continue to be via email (listed on our staff page), and we will also be checking voicemail remotely on our main office line (206.323.3318).

All Pride Foundation events, including The Equity Awards gala in Portland, and staff travel are on hold for the time being. We are practicing social distancing, knowing that it is our shared responsibility to do everything in our power to contribute to the prevention of the spread of this virus. This not only includes the events we are hosting, but also staff participation in community events, and meetings. When possible, we are hosting virtual meetings and offering our video conferencing software as a support tool.
