Give the gift of PRIDE this holiday season

lgbtqToday, Milwaukee Pride is participating in #GivingTuesday.

What is #GivingTuesday? It’s a special call to action to create giving that brings diverse organizations and communities around the world together to give more, to do more and to be more.

Now is your chance to be a part of the big picture.  By giving to Milwaukee Pride, you can be sure even a modest donation can have a massive local impact.

And this year, Milwaukee Pride made a tremendous local impact:

  • We celebrated the first four-day PrideFest Milwaukee, which — despite bleak weather — still welcomed 45,400 proud visitors to the largest LGBTQ pride event in Wisconsin history;
  • We observed the 30th Annual National Coming Out Day with BeOUT Milwaukee, a partnership with the NOH8 Campaign that celebrated individuals who elevate local LGBTQ visibility every day;
  • We stood united against legalized transgender discrimination at the Rally for Resistance, in partnership with leading local LGBTQ organizations;
  • We successfully implemented the city’s permanent, year-round tribute to local LGBTQ people — and changed city policy in the process — with the implementation of the Rainbow Crosswalks Initiative in Cathedral Square.
  • We acquired and incorporated the Wisconsin LGBTQ History Project as an education program of Milwaukee Pride, Inc.; and
  • We launched the Stonewall Stage Talks, a free monthly outreach series that supports our mission of community awareness and activism around LGBTQ causes.

We are always proud to say that pride gives back!  This year, Milwaukee Pride distributed over $25,000 to mission-critical community causes, including:

Imagine what your gift can do — and how far your gift can go — in 2019 and beyond!

Giving Tuesday is IMPORTANT! The power of collective giving means more funding and resources drive more support and more progress. By making a tax-deductible donation today, YOU are the one breathing the life into organizations and people that receive support from Milwaukee Pride.

Please consider a gift in the range of $25 – $1,000. Sending your gift today will ensure your tax benefits for the end of the year.  Our actions TODAY will influence the future of our local LGBTQ community.
