Your Pride, our Pride, here in San Diego is truly something special. Not only are we a massive beautiful celebration and protest of LGBTQ art, culture, issues, and resources, but support for those events is what also helps to fund our ever-growing year-round programs. Nearly every single event and program we produce for Pride season and all year long are free and open to the public. Even our Festival is free for youth, seniors, and those most in need. The work, however, requires financial investment.
When COVID-19 took away our organization’s main source of income I have to admit that I was terrified at first, but our community quickly showed that they had our back. It’s been inspiring to watch the number of people who donate to Pride grow over the last two years. Because of you, we have been able to sustain and grow our programs and reach more LGBTQ community members than ever before.
This year we’re again joining Give OUT Day, a national call to action to support LGBTQ nonprofits like San Diego Pride. Our goal today is to raise $56,000!
You can donate and thanks to one of our sponsors, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, they’ll match every dollar up to $5,000 – so every dollar you give is DOUBLED up to $5,000!
You can share the word about Pride’s Give OUT Day campaign today, that same social media took kit is there to help!
Our Pride has grown, expanded, and diversified over the past several years thanks to the hard legacy-building work of our Stonewall generation and current intergenerational community volunteers donating time every day. I hope you will join us this Give OUT Day by sustaining that work and our programs with a donation. Every dollar helps us continue serving our community as we create Justice with Joy!
