SAN DIEGO, California -- Thanks to a surplus in proceeds from the 2014 San Diego Pride events and celebration, the organization is opening their community grant process.
“The grants are funded by proceeds from the Pride Music Festival in Balboa Park,” Pride Executive Director Stephen Whitburn stated in a press release. “When you buy a festival ticket, you gain admission to the biggest party in town, and you help fund community services at the same time.”
These grants are open to official 501(c)(3) nonprofits serving the LGBT community or those that would qualify for official status should they file. Applications are available through Pride’s website sdpride.org/grants and the deadline is Oct. 31.
Those selected will receive their distribution later this year.
Founded in 1974, San Diego Pride is a charitable nonprofit that has distributed more than $2 million to community organizations since 1995. Those wishing to make their own charitable impact on SD Pride’s grant process are encouraged to click HERE.
