Community Grant Program

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.

Our Vision: 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.

Philosophy: St Pete Pride’s work is guided by social justice philanthropy. Social justice philanthropy for St Pete Pride is:

1. 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.
2. Supporting non-profit organizations and leaders that work for structural change.

3. Increasing the opportunity and engagement of those who are marginalized politically, economically, and socially.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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. This includes 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, and increasing the opportunity and engagement of those who are marginalized politically, economically, and socially. Together with cultural activities and events by way of St Pete Pride Weekend, a permanent, positive change in attitude towards the LGBT community can be accomplished.

At our core is a drive to be much more than the sum of our individual programs and projects. We continuously pursue new ideas, strategies and solutions that can be tested in one place and replicated in others. And we collaborate to achieve results far beyond what we could accomplish alone.

Working with partnering organizations through our Community Grants program, we will enable organizations to increase their investment in initiatives we share, encouraging and meeting the demands of goals.

This connectivity is a powerful driver of initiatives. It has led to the launch of the Community Grants Program with the vision of building a society marked by permanent, positive changes in attitudes and behaviors towards the Tampa Bay LGBT community. And already this program has begun to pay dividends by enabling organizations to increase their investment in initiatives we share.
