Every year Come Out With Pride, Inc. allocates funds towards grants and scholarships for the Central Florida community. Our board evaluates the needs of local LGBTQ+ organizations, LGBTQ+ students and that of allied organizations doing an outstanding job at educating and providing services to our community towards acceptance and equal rights.
This year we are focusing on three areas:
1. LGBT+ Health & Wellness
2. LGBT+ Economic Development
3. LGBT+ Education
Come Out With Pride does not provide grants to political or activist groups. Our focus is on those organizations who might be struggling to meet their goals and those with a mission aimed at educating and assisting members of our community.
In 2016, we provided $30,000 in scholarships, cash grants and promotional/logistical assistance to the following organizations/causes:
- Pulse of Orlando
- GLSEN Orlando
- Orlando Youth Alliance
- Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando
- MBA Orlando
- Libby’s Legacy
- Two Spirit Health Services
- Prism – Teach for America
