The Phoenix Pride Community Grants Program is a charitable program which provides financial grants to nonprofit organizations serving Maricopa County’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. Funds for the program are administered by the Arizona Community Foundation. Since it’s inception in 2010, the Phoenix Pride Community Grants Program has awarded $90,000 in grants.

We are enormously proud of our ability to give back to the Phoenix LGBTQ community, to utilize funds generated from Phoenix Pride events to support significant, impactful community programs.

Due to the acquisition of the Phoenix Pride LGBT Center and the 2012 acquisition of the Rainbows Festival, the Community Grants program has been placed on hiatus. Following the successful completion of our 2015 Program Year, the Phoenix Pride Board of Directors will determine how to best reschedule the Community Grants program cycle based on an evolving programmatic and fiscal calendar.

At this time, the board does not anticipate any major changes to the structure of the Community Grants program itself, outside of its schedule for application, review and delivery of funds.

Please stay tuned for additional information, to be released before the end of the 2015 calendar year.
