Pride Foundation expands opportunities and advances full equality for LGBTQ people in the Northwest through building organizations, supporting students, and connecting leaders through grants, scholarships, advocacy and timely initiatives. Pride Foundation’s vision is for all LGBTQ people and families to be able to live openly and safely in their home communities.
Bottom Line for Portland
Pride Foundation invests in issues impacting LGBTQ people like safe schools, health care access, HIV/AIDS support and prevention, and food and housing security. Last year, Pride Foundation invested more than $90,000 in scholarships for LGBTQ students in the Portland metropolitan area, and an additional $55,000 in grants to organizations providing services for LGBTQ communities in Portland.
“Pride Foundation’s support shows that my work is valued by my community. Pride Foundation gives in an effort to expand opportunities and advance equality for LGBTQ people, and that’s exactly what their scholarship did for me.” —Jose, Portland scholarship recipient
