Community Reinvestment Grants
The Atlanta Pride Committee was built on the power of community - one that gets stronger with every volunteer, member, and participant that supports the work that we do all year long. Today we're excited to harness the potential of our community by giving back through our Community Reinvestment Grant initiative.
We know that this work cannot be done without the partnership of other LGBTQ+ serving organizations, and our ongoing Community Reinvestment Grant Fund helps us to identify local groups that provide services and programs that embody our mission. These organizations define the very term "grassroots," they need support, funding, and resources at the source to help elevate the work they provide for the community.
