Community Support

We’re in This Together.

Seattle’s LGBTQIA+ community is fortunate to have a number of nonprofits advocating in support of diversity, inclusivity and equal human rights for all. Since 2017, we’ve awarded more than $226,000 in grant funding to several of them—because we recognize we can do more good, when we do it together.

In addition, we provide free Pride Parade registrations to dozens of organizations each year through our Community Sponsorship Program, and over $58,000 in COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funds

What's the difference between a grant and a sponsorship?

Grants are typically used for an organization's ongoing work, such as covering the cost of a position to carry out the mission of the organization. Grants also come with reporting requirements.

Sponsorships tend to be event-specific, such as helping pay for some of an event costs in return for recognition in the program.

Can the same organization apply for a grant and and a sponsorship?

Of course!

Grants are made out of our Seattle Out & Proud Foundation (501c3) to help further your work.

Sponsorships come out of Seattle Pride's (501c4) organization to help you deliver event-specific, finite work.

When do you make decisions on who you'll give a grant or sponsorship to?

Grants and sponsorship applications are awarded at every Seattle Pride Board Meeting, on the first Wednesday of every month. Awardees are notified shortly after.

We really need this grant, but the reporting requirements are intimidating. Can you help?

Absolutely! Reporting requirements and paperwork should never be a barrier to receiving much-needed funds. Please reach out to Seattle Pride.

If we received funds in previous years, will we still be considered?

Yes! We want to see your good work continue!
