A DIFFERENT KIND OF PRIDE ORGANIZATION
San Diego Pride is one of the ONLY pride organizations that provides year-round education and advocacy programs to support the LGBT community. For us, fostering pride, equality, and respect for LGBT individuals is a 365 day a year mission. Our work is focused on connecting individuals living at the intersections of multiple marginalized identities including LGBTQ youth, seniors, people with disabilities, veterans, Latinx, Black, and API communities to each other and to vital social safety nets. Last year alone we engaged 72,869 LGBT community members through over 30 programs and events BEYOND the pride weekend festivities! We’d love to have your support to continue this vital work!
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP THIS YEAR MORE THAN EVER
San Diego Pride’s funding sources have been severely impacted by the declaration of a state of emergency and the COVID-19 pandemic. We have had to cancel key fundraising events - including the annual Pride Parade and Festival in July – which represents a substantial financial loss to our organization. Despite these losses, we have transitioned ALL our weekly support groups and programming to virtual platforms to help our community members combat social isolation! Your support on GiveOUT Day will help this work continue!
AND we have a match! Tito's Handmade Vodka has generously offered to match our donations up to $5,000 from now until Give OUT Day!
100% of funds raised you give to San Diego Pride on Give OUT Day will be used to support LGBTQ programming like:
Virtual youth programming such as Queer Power Hour and the Youth Leadership Academy that will help over 4,000 LGBTQ youth stay connected this year
Virtual events and socials for women identified people in the LGBTQ community that are accessible and trans/GNC inclusive, such as SHE FEST
Resume & Career Workshops for LGBTQ people who have lost work to COVID-19
LIVE streaming self-care workshops for LGBTQ people like yoga, stretching, and LGBTQ “family dinners”
Online coalition groups for LGBTQ LATINX and API community so that their essential anti-racism and community building work can continue
Simple distribution programs that provide essentials like masks and grocery cards to vulnerable LGBTQ community members
