Today, Tomorrow, and into the Future

Community is at the heart of everything we do at Pride Foundation. Since day one of the COVID-19 pandemic, our community’s response across the Northwest 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.

Now years into the COVID-19 pandemic, we finally have comprehensive data around how the pandemic has affected LGBTQ+ families and communities. In general, the data we have confirms what we already knew anecdotally to be true—that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the challenges and inequities that already existed for LGBTQ+ people and communities.

Across all social indicators wherein LGBTQ+ people were already impacted by inequities—health, healthcare, housing, employment, child and family care, and more—the data indicates COVID-19 has only compounded those already existing inequities. The good news is that we now have a clearer picture of what LGBTQ+ people are facing—and how we can keep showing up best for our communities. Read more about this impact and the data surrounding it here.

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.

Crisis Community Care Efforts

Show your community that no one is in this alone



Since March 6, 2020, 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).
