Support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer equality and inclusion.
In Canada, and around the world, homophobia and transphobia persist, contributing to violence, discrimination, stigma, and significantly increased suicide rates (especially for queer youth).
You can make a difference by funding critical work to create a safer, more inclusive society. The LGBTQ+ Pride Fund supports a range of Canadian charities working to promote equality, reduce stigma, and celebrate LGTBQ+ identities in Canada and abroad.
Your gift will support marginalized LGBTQ+ communities, including youth, refugees, seniors, and those experiencing homelessness with counselling and support services, healthcare, and other essentials they need to survive and succeed. You will also support LGBTQ+ advocacy, education, and other work aimed at reducing stigma and discrimination. Finally, you will also help fund arts, pride, and social programs to ensure communities thrive!
Your donation will be pooled with gifts of others like you to help achieve wide-reaching effects and make a real impact. Donate today and help those in need. Plus, get an official charitable tax receipt to qualify for tax credits!
