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 grassroots groups that are doing work within our community with an eye towards smaller organizations, new/innovative programs, and intersectional proposals.
Through the Boston Pride Community Fund, we aim to offer support and visibility to small and community-based projects, and in addition capital improvement projects benefiting the LGBTQ community.
