APC Announces 2022 Grant Recipients

APC Announces 2022 Grant Recipients

Atlanta, Georgia — The Atlanta Pride Committee (APC) announced its 2022-2023 Community Reinvestment Grant recipients. Community Reinvestment Grants (CRG) are our commitment to supporting allied organizations doing critical work to benefit members of our community. In allocating grants, APC prioritizes organizations with under represented leadership and without access to significant fund development resources.

"No organization can achieve transformative justice and equity alone," said Jamie Fergerson, APC's Executive Director. "As Georgia's oldest LGBTQ+ organization, it is our responsibility to give back to the community in a tangible way. By sharing our staff and their expertise, low or no cost opportunities to participate in the Atlanta Pride Festival and Parade, and tangible cash support, we support our grantees and community partners in continuing the work which benefits our shared communities."

After successfully navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and returning to an in-person Festival and Parade (the organization's signature event and biggest fundraiser), the Atlanta Pride Committee remains committed to its year round investment in the work of our community partners and allied organizations. With tremendous support from our donors and sponsors, APC is able to award over $70,000 in grants for 2023.

"In 2022, APC expanded our impact beyond the borders of Metro Atlanta by partnering with grantees across the entire Southeastern region," said Steven-Igarashi-Ball, APC'S Director of Equity and Engagement. "By continuing to support programming with ripple effects across the state and beyond in 2023, we will continue to build on the longevity of our grantees' work."

APC reviews priority categories for funding annually. All grant recipients are allied organizations that are committed to increasing the wellbeing and visibility of LGBTQ+ people in the Southeast. APC's 2023 priority funding categories include health services, transgender, and queer youth initiatives.
