The Capital Pride 2024 Community Project Fund offers funding to groups to support an event or programming during the Capital Pride Festival, August 17-25. Events and programming must advance one (or more) of Capital Pride’s goals: to educate, to advocate, to celebrate, and to unite people. Successful applicants may receive up to $1,000.

The deadline for applications is June 24, 2024. Recipients should receive notification by July 5.

Eligibility criteria:

All applications must meet the eligibility criteria in order to receive support from the Community Project Fund. The criteria are as follows:

  • Applications must come from a non-profit organization or community group;
  • The group or organization must operate in the National Capital Region or in the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation or Pikwakanagan First Nation territories;
  • The organization’s central mission must be to serve the 2SLGBTQ+ community, or the group must focus on the 2SLGBTQ+ community or have a significant interest in supporting and advancing this community;
  • The event must take place during the 2024 festival, from August 17 to 25, 2024.

Please note that the fund is open to and encourages collaborative projects between different organizations or groups. However, one organization must be designated as responsible for applying on behalf of the partners.

Those organizing events or programming that serve marginalized or underrepresented communities within the 2SLGBTQ+ community will be given priority. This includes events and programming for trans and non-binary people, racialized people, Indigenous peoples, people living with disabilities, people living with HIV/AIDS, migrant people, and people from other marginalized communities.
