Community Support

We’re in this Together.

Seattle’s LGBTQIA+ community is fortunate to have a number of nonprofits and grassroots organizations advocating in support of diversity, inclusivity, and equal human rights. We believe in them!  Since we launched our grants program in 2017, we’ve awarded more than $500,000 in grants and sponsorships to many of them—because we can do more good when we do it together. 

In addition, we provide free Pride Parade registrations to all small LGBTQIA+ non-profit organizations each year, prioritize free events, and collaborate with partners to host internships, art activations, and events.

Grants & Sponsorships

Grant & Sponsorship Applications are currently paused until 2025.

Seattle Pride is taking a strategic pause to review and revise our grant guidelines. Rest assured that our grant program will return, with updated funding guidelines and priorities, to provide robust support to queer-serving organizations.

Grants for the funding cycle that ended May 31, 2024 will be awarded in July; applications will not be accepted for grants between June 1, 2024 and the end of the calendar year. In the meantime, if you have questions, please feel free to reach out to us at

Grant Cycle

The new grant cycle will launch in January 2025.


What's the difference between a grant and a sponsorship?

Grants are typically used for an organization's ongoing work, such as covering the cost of a position to carry out the mission of the organization. Grants also come with reporting requirements.

Sponsorships tend to be event-specific, such as helping pay for some of an event costs in return for recognition in the program.

Can the same organization apply for a grant and and a sponsorship?

Of course!

When do you make decisions on who you'll give a grant or sponsorship to?

Grants and sponsorship are awarded quarterly in March, July, Sept, and December, depending on which cycle you submitted your application.

If we received funds in previous years, will we still be considered?

Yes! We want to see your good work continue!
