San Diego Pride to help 2012 grantees increase their funding

SAN DIEGO -- San Diego Pride is hoping that community members will help double the grant funds that it distributed to 14 community organizations last week.

After a successful 2012 pride season, the organization was able to grant $28,000 to the organizations, bringing Pride's community giving total to over $85,000 for the year.

San Diego Pride is hoping the community will help double the amount the 14 organizations received and has created an online community matching campaign to make it easy for community members to provide support with a gift during this holiday season of giving.

“Pride has continued to work hard to increase both the size and scope of our annual event, year round civic engagement, and community giving. This year has been one of our most successful in all three areas in recent memory,” said Dwayne Crenshaw, San Diego LGBT Pride Executive Director.

“We are proud to offer the opportunity for Pride’s dollars to stretch even further and do more good with a community matching campaign that will allow more individuals to engage with the organizations they love.”

Organizations include:

Being Alive-San Diego
CESCaL (Center for Excellence in School Counseling and Leadership)
Diversionary Theater
GLSEN (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network)
Lambda Archives of San Diego
Live and Let Live Alano Club
North County Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Questioning Resource Center
