How We Select
Our Partners

Heritage of Pride takes great pains to ensure that partnerships meet strict criteria and that all partners are working to further the mission of the organization

Why Do We Partner with Corporations?

From receiving in-kind donations in food and beverage for our volunteers to being able to give us the ability to donate funds to local LGBTQIA+ non profits, there are many reasons why a partnership with corporations leads to the overall benefit and increased visibility of the LGBTQIA+ community.

How it Works

  • With 70% of partners returning, the first round of communication begins with many of them reaching out to us first.
  • The Partnerships team thoroughly researches the company to check their history with the LGBTQIA+ community. Most come to us with a deck already prepared with this information.
  • NYC Pride uses the HRC Corporate Equality Index to measure our partners on corporate policies, practices and benefits pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees.
  • The Partnerships Manager discusses the sponsorship program and how the two can be mutually supportive of each other. A decision is made and partnership is executed throughout the calendar year.


  • Employees and customers feel seen, heard, and supported
  • Donations to local LGBTQIA+ non-profits through our Pride Gives Back program.
  • Employs 20 queer people each year at NYC Pride
  • Employs 50+ queer performers each year
  • Production of FREE events such as Family Movie Night and Youth Pride
  • Large in-kind donations to NYC Pride such as PR assistance, food/beverages and more.
  • Annually contracts 11+ small businesses
