Pride is pleased to announce the success of this year’s event has allowed them to continue to give back to local and national LGBT community organizations by offering grants.

Each year Pride strives to return proceeds from the annual LGBT Pride weekend back into the community.

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

Pride will be accepting grant requests for amounts ranging from $500 to $5k.

"I am extremely proud that, thanks to the continued support of our community, San Diego LGBT Pride can once again provide support to others through its Pride Community Grant program,” said Pride Executive Director, Eric Heinritz. “This annual contribution helps grow and strengthen other organizations and the result truly makes a difference in our local community and beyond."

Grant applications and info can be found HERE. Pride will be accepting grant requests until 5 pm Tuesday, October 31, 2017.
