Event Details

NYC Pride Working Grants

Every year, NYC Pride awards thousands of dollars in grant money to local organizations.  These organizations are usually nonprofits that serve the LGBT community. The grants are "working" grants, which means that in order to receive the grant money, members or volunteers from your organization must perform specific job duties, as a group, at our NYC Pride events. Grants are awarded in amounts from $1,000 to $3,000, depending on the job type.  (The grant jobs are described below.)

 

If interested in applying for a working grant, a designated individual from your organization must complete our online application. Once it is submitted, your application will be reviewed by our Working Grant Committee. The Working Grant Committee will determine which organizations will be awarded working grants. If awarded a working grant, your organization will be notified, and will receive a Working Grant Agreement. The Agreement will outline NYC Pride's expectations of your organization, and what your organization can expect NYC Pride to provide in return.
