We fund organizations for and led by LGBTQ+ people.

Organizations must meet the following criteria to be eligible for funding:

In general, we prioritize funding organizations and programs with the following:

  • QTBIPOC-led and focused; this means that the vast majority of organization staff, volunteers, and participants are QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color).
  • Based in rural areas of our 5-state region
  • Have a budget of $750,000 or less; or 5 FTE staff or less; does not have to be both

We are not able to fund:

  • Organizations that do NOT have nonprofit 501(c)(3) status or do not have fiscal sponsorship.
  • Organizations are NOT based in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, or Washington.

Our Current Funding Programs

We currently offer grants through three areas of funding:

  1. Community Grants Program
  2. Washington Youth Initiative: funding for LGBTQ+ youth-led and youth-focused organizations and programs in Washington (invite only). Contact youth@pridefoundation.org if you are interested in learning more.

We encourage organizations interested in funding and other partnership possibilities to contact us at grants@pridefoundation.org. We are sometimes able to provide funding beyond these 3 funding programs. Even if we do not currently have funding for your work, we want to learn about your work so we can strategize and create future funding opportunities; so do not hesitate to share more about your work, or ask us for funding. We receive a high volume of emails and may not be able to respond to every email.
