Pride Foundation’s work is guided by social justice philanthropy. Social justice philanthropy for Pride Foundation is:
- Harnessing the tools of philanthropy (granting, fundraising, communication, and advocacy) to address the ways in which the LGBTQ community is connected to systemic inequities that impact other marginalized and underrepresented groups in our society.
- Supporting nonprofit organizations and leaders that work for structural change.
- Increasing the opportunity and engagement of those who are marginalized politically, economically, and socially.
If you need more information regarding this process, contact your area’s Regional Development Organizer.
