Addressing Issues Head-On

From public education campaigns to focused funding programs, Pride Foundation leads innovative and strategic initiatives tackling the multitude of issues facing our communities across our region. These initiatives, along with our advocacy work, complement our thoughtful and intentional grantmaking in advancing our mission and strategy.


Ongoing Initiatives


Our goal is to create a Northwest region that is inhospitable to homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny and all other forms of harm directed at LGBTQ+ communities. Our Community Advocacy, Research, and Education (C.A.R.E.) work focuses on shifting culture in communities across the Northwest to make this vision a reality.
