San Diego Pride to give $80,000 to LGBT serving non-profit organizations

The community benefits from a successful Pride 2016.

San Diego LGBT Pride is pleased to announce that due to the success of this year's Pride event, we are able to donate $80,000 of our proceeds back to 40 LGBT-serving organizations through our annual Pride Community Grant Program.

Each year Pride works to return profits from the annual LGBT Pride weekend to the community.

Over the years, San Diego Pride's community contributions have exceeded 2 million dollars, which have been distributed to dozens of organizations through Pride Community Grants, sponsorships, and event support.

“Pride’s annual celebration, year-round advocacy and education efforts serve our community well, but no one organization can do it all, which is why our grant programs are so vital,” said Fernando Lopez, San Diego Pride Director of Operations.

“Pride grants help to fund HIV testing, LGBT youth programs, sobriety services, programs that support our transgender community, LGBTQ arts and culture, QPOC programs, and a variety of other LGBTQ health and human services that our community relies on and enjoys.”
