The Manchester Pride Community Fund raises essential funds to support LGBTQ+ communities. Every penny donated to the Manchester Pride Community Fund goes directly to LGBTQ+ causes and projects in Greater Manchester. This means none of the money you donate goes to the day to day operations of The Manchester Pride Charity.
Grants from the Manchester Pride Community Fund are available to LGBTQ+ community and voluntary groups, organisations and registered charities in Greater Manchester.
Organisation will be required to apply for a grant from the Manchester Pride Community Fund. The new, streamlined grant application process will be published by the end of May. Grant applications will be reviewed and rewarded by the Manchester Pride board of Trustees and the Community Grants Panel which will be established by the end of May.
