Boston Pride announced the recipients of the first Boston Pride Community Fund. The fund was established to provide grants to small nonprofits & other groups that support the LGBT community. The announcement was made by Boston Pride President Sylvain Bruni & Vice President Linda DeMarco after an independent panel of community members processed all the applications received at the end of 2015. Bruni stated, “We are thrilled to announce the grant recipients of our first ever Boston Pride Community Fund. With the funds raised through various Pride events, we are now able to offer support & visibility to small & community-based projects within our community.”
DeMarco concluded, “We congratulate all 2016 Community Fund recipients. And we thank profusely all members of our review panel who thoroughly reviewed every submission, in service to our community.” 2016 Boston Pride Community Fund recipients are: The Tiffany Club of New England, GLSEN Massachusetts, NAGLY
Lesbian of Color Symposium (LOCS) Collective, Voices Rising Chorus, In The Streets Productions, Mystic LGBTQ+ Youth Support Network, OUT MetroWest, New England Professional Queer WoMen of Color, Tennis4All Boston & Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance. The Boston Pride Community Fund was established from contributions by community members at the Jamaica Plain & Back Bay Block Parties. It’s Boston Pride’s vision to support annually the Community Fund by giving back monies raised to small non-profit organizations & groups within the LGBT Community. These awards provide an opportunity to educate our greater community about the important work these organizations & groups are performing in service of the LGBT Community.
