As a non-profit organization, we are fueled by the generosity of those we serve – people of all gender expressions and sexual identities. The Pride community has come a long way, but the road ahead is still long, and the need for support is as strong as ever. Make a tax-deductible donation today to help provide advocacy, education, and networking opportunities to the still under-served Upstate Pride community.
Other Ways To Give
There are other ways to support Upstate Pride SC in addition to giving a charitable gift. One way is to sign up with Amazon Smile to donate 0.5% of all Amazon purchases to Upstate Pride SC.
If you are a local business or non-profit, take ownership of your community pride event by sponsoring a special part of our annual March & Festival! A recent study by CreditDonkey reports that nearly two-thirds of gays and lesbians are more likely to purchase products and services that are marketed specifically to them. The same report showed a high retention and sense of loyalty amongst LGBTQI patrons. Tell your customers and patrons that you care about their well-being and their business by considering one of many different sponsorship opportunities today!
Our community trusts us to provide quality opportunities for education, advocacy, and networking, but we rely on our community to help make it happen. Although our Board of Directors is highly dedicated, we are small, and it takes a village to make our programs successful. We rely on volunteers to set up tents, blow up balloons, direct traffic, conduct surveys, operate equipment, collect donations, serve on committees, and much more. It really is amazing what we accomplish together. Right now, we're looking for volunteers for our 2017 March & Festival. Click below to be a part of the fun!
