Submissions for the 2017 Phoenix Pride Festival and Rainbows Festival are now being accepted. Phoenix Pride only accepts submissions for these programs at the end of the calendar year for all events taking place the following year.

The Phoenix Pride Partnership Program is a charitable program designed to give financial support to various eligible metropolitan Phoenix LGBT-focused 501(c)(3) or (4) non-profit organizations that provide volunteer services for Phoenix Pride events. The Phoenix Pride Partnership Program has awarded nearly $457,000 since it’s inception in 2008.

There are two segments to this program: (1) the Phoenix Pride Volunteer Grant Program; and (2) the Phoenix Pride Beverage Grant Program.

Phoenix Pride Volunteer Grant Program

This program creates opportunities for eligible metropolitan Phoenix LGBTQ-focused 501(c)(3) or (4) non-profit organizations to provide general non-beverage volunteer services for designated Phoenix Pride events throughout the year in return for credits translatable to charitable donations from Phoenix Pride. Upon approval of the application, each volunteer provided by the approved organization shall commit and provide a minimum of four (4) volunteer service hours to the event, as tracked by the Volunteer Manager, for such hours to be eligible towards charitable credits.
