In light of Stonewall 50, we would like to celebrate multiple organizations that provide direct support services for the LGBTQIA+ community through the introduction of our Brooklyn Pride Inc. Volunteer Grant.
How it works:• The Brooklyn Pride Inc. Volunteer Grant is funded by net profits from our Brooklyn Pride LGBTQIA+ 5K Run registration fees.• Organizations, who qualify for non-profit status under IRS Code, are encouraged to apply for grant funding.• Applications for funding to support a program or event that welcomes or celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community will be reviewed by the Brooklyn Pride LGBTQIA+ Race Directors.• If selected, the organization will agree to provide 5 volunteers for our 5K Run to receive a $500 grant.• A check for grant funding will be presented to your organization at the Brooklyn Pride Volunteer Thank You Celebration, held in mid-July.
Interested in submitting an application? Please make sure you have the following information available:• A brief summary and mission statement of your organization (to be published in Brooklyn Pride Guide, if selected).• High Resolution organization logo or graphic (to be published in Brooklyn Pride Guide, if selected).• List of organization officers and directors.• A brief summary of how you will use the funding.• Relevant documentation of non-profit status under IRS Code.• Most recent annual report or Form 990 (dated within 1 year of application submission).• W9 (dated within 1 year of application submission).
The application questions that follow are mandatory for all organizations requesting grant funding through the Brooklyn Pride Inc. Volunteer Grant. Receipt of funding is contingent upon upholding the agreement of pre-determined number of volunteers at the Brooklyn Pride LGBTQIA+ 5K Run.
