Logo meaning: Empowering together in Love
Mission of St Pete Pride’s Community Grant Program
Empower the lesbian, gay-man, bi-sexual and transgender community by building stronger environments, healthier living, and more fulfilling lives.
We envision a stronger society marked by permanent, positive changes in attitudes and behaviors towards the LGBT community, and the ability of all LGBT individuals to realize their fullest potential.
St Pete Pride’s work is guided by social justice philanthropy. Social justice philanthropy for St Pete Pride is:
- Harnessing the tools of philanthropy (granting, fundraising, communication, and advocacy) to address the ways in which the LGBT community is connected to systemic inequities that impact other marginalized and underrepresented grounds in our society.
- Supporting non-profit organizations and leaders that work for structural change.
- Increasing the opportunity and engagement of those who are marginalized politically, economically, and socially.
