Resourcing Transformational LGBTQ+ Movements

Pride Foundation fuels transformational movements for equity and justice across the Northwest. We provide critical funding to the remarkable community organizations that are working to address the needs of LGBTQ+ people in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

Our grants support smaller, grassroots, LGBTQ+ led and focused organizations—especially those working with and in community who have been most harmed by systemic injustices like racism, xenophobia, misogyny, ableism, and transphobia.

Our Role

As the only LGBTQ+ community foundation in the Northwest—and one of few institutions intentionally investing in LGBTQ+ communities—we play a critical role for LGBTQ+ led and focused organizations in the region. This is especially true for smaller, grassroots organizations who often do not have the same level of access to funding. By strategically investing in these organizations, we have the opportunity to make a bigger impact on the ecosystem of support for LGBTQ+ people in the Northwest.

We are continually evolving our grantmaking programs to be responsive to the needs and opportunities arising in the Northwest, while simplifying our processes and reducing burdens on current and potential grantee partner organizations.

Mutual Partnership, Collective Commitments to Justice

We are proud to partner with community based organizations who are working for equity and justice in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. All organizations that receive a grant from Pride Foundation sign onto the following mutual partnership agreement, knowing it will take all of us—individuals, groups, organizations, and systems—to build toward our collective liberation.

Mutual Partnership 

We understand and are committed to the work it entails to create a foundation of mutual trust and partnership. Our priority is to communicate openly with you and provide the space for you to do the same. Together, we hope both of our organizations will strive to:

  • Provide context, background, and purpose when we make requests of one another.
  • Listen closely to one another’s thinking, goals, successes, and visions for the future.
  • Work intentionally to build a relationship where both our organizations can share expectations and feedback in an open and timely manner.
  • Build the kind of relationship where each of our organizations feels comfortable sharing struggles, challenges, and mistakes with each other openly and in the spirit of learning and growing together.
  • Be proactive in our commitments and learnings to become anti-racist and anti-oppressive organizations.
  • Acknowledge and apologize when there is harm, regardless of intent.


Organizations that receive grants from Pride Foundation must also certify that they do not discriminate in regard to age, race or ethnicity, color, gender, gender identity, gender expression, disability, creed or religion, national origin, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, military status, or political or union ideology or affiliation.

This grant from Pride Foundation supports the incorporation of LGBTQ+ inclusiveness throughout our entire sexual health education lesson package, and supports the Rainbow Army, our LGBTQ+ and allied youth support group, to continue to flourish.
