Donations also help to provide direct financial support to local community organizations for programs that celebrate and enrich lives of members of the LGBTQ+ community; expand access to programs, events and activities to ensure inclusivity; promote events and programs that provide visibility and elevate the voices of the LGBTQ+ community; and allow leaders and members of community organizations to participate in professional development and training opportunities that directly enhance cultural competencies.

The Pride 365 Fund

Established in 2021, the Pride365 Fund is the Capital Pride Alliance’s answer to the ever-increasing need for financial support amongst LGBTQ+ organizations in the National Capital Region. Nearly 10 percent of residents in the Nation’s capital identify as LGBTQ+, yet local LGBTQ+ organizations often lack equitable access to taxpayer funded initiatives, government and private grants, and other important opportunities that enable non-profit organizations to provide critical services to their fullest extent. Facilitated by the Capital Pride Alliance, the Fund awards financial resources to 501(c)(3) organizations that demonstrate a commitment to the LGBTQ+ community 365 days a year.

Become a Fundraising Partner

Non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals can become a fundraising partner to help raise money for the LGBTQ+ community, through the Pride365 Fund. Simply, create a GivePride365 fundraising page, by selecting “I Want To Fundraise For This“, and choose to fundraise as an individual or an organization (team). Once your fundraising page is created, share it through your social media platforms, email lists, and work-of-mouth.

Apply to the Fund

For an organization to be eligible for GivePride365 funding, their primary mission must be to serve the local LGBTQ+ community. Participants must be a registered 501(c)(3) organization or have a fiscal agent that is. The grant cycle begins in October of each year, with awards announced on #GivingTuesday.

History

The Capital Pride Alliance teamed up with chart-topping pop trio SHAED on The Colorful Campaign in 2021, to launch the GivePride365 Fund, benefitting local LGBTQ+ charities in the National Capital Region and beyond.

Colorful, a new single by the band SHAED, tells the story of one’s experience as a member or ally of the LGBTQ+ community. The inspiring single, included on SHAED’s new album, High Dive, is out now. One hundred percent  of the net proceeds from downloads and streaming services of Colorful will go toward the GivePride365 Fund, in addition to direct donations during the campaign.

This fund is administered by the Capital Pride Alliance, Inc. a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is incorporated in the District of Columbia.

The Capital Pride Alliance, through its stewardship of diverse programming and events, specifically year-round LGBTQ+ Pride festivities centered in Washington, DC and the National Capital Region, serves to celebrate, educate, support, and inspire our multi-faceted communities in order to grow and preserve our history and protect our rights for current and future generations
