About the Community Fund

The New Boston Pride Committee, Inc., d/b/a Boston Pride, a nonprofit organizations founded in 1970, produces events and activities to achieve inclusivity, equality, respect, and awareness in Greater Boston and beyond. Fostering diversity, unity, visibility, and dignity, we educate, communicate, and advocate by building and strengthening community connections.

With the additional contributions our community members have given at our JP and Back Bay Block Parties, and with the proceeds from the High Heel Dash, we have established the Boston Pride Community Fund. Once a year, in support of our vision and mission, we will give back monies raised in our Community Fund to non-profit organizations and groups within our community.

Boston Pride will use this opportunity to educate ourselves and others about the important work these organizations and groups are doing in service of our local community. Through the Boston Pride Community Fund, we aim to offer support and visibility to small and community-based projects.
