Community Grants

Every year, NYC Pride awards thousands of dollars in grant money to LGBT-friendly and LGBT-serving organizations. The grants are working grants, which means that in order to receive the grant money, members or volunteers from your organization must perform specific job duties, as a group, at our NYC Pride events. Grants are awarded in amounts from $1,000 to $3,000, depending on the job type.
