Boston, MA – March 10, 2017>– Today, Boston Pride announced the recipients of the 2017 Boston Pride Community Fund that was established to provide grants to small nonprofits and other groups that support the LGBTQ community. Boston Pride convened an independent panel of community members who processed all the applications received at the end of 2016.

“It is our honor to announce the 2017 grant recipients of our Community Fund,” said Sylvain Bruni, President of Boston Pride. “Reflecting this year’s Pride theme, Boston Pride is committed to building a community that is ‘Stronger Together’ and by supporting these community-based organizations we will all benefit from the tremendous work they do and their contributions to the LGBTQ community.”

The Boston Pride Community Fund was established by contributions received at last year’s Back Bay Block Party, Jamaica Plain Block Party and several other Pride events. It is Boston Pride’s vision to support the Community Fund annually by giving back funds raised to small nonprofit organizations and groups within the LGBTQ Community. These awards provide the opportunity to educate the entire community about the important work these organizations and groups are performing in service of the LGBTQ community.
