Give Charlotte Pride a kickstart! Donate today in our 30-day fundraising challenge!
Charlotte Pride is ramping up for a great 2013 festival in Uptown Charlotte, Aug. 24-25. It’ll be an exciting event following our historic, successful event in 2012, which attracted more than 45,000 people to Uptown one weekend before the city hosted the Democratic National Convention. This year, the re-established Charlotte Pride will present our biggest and brightest festival yet, and we’re counting on you to help grow our event and keep it, as always, fun and free for the whole community.
Starting today and running through April 9, we’re asking individuals and small businesses to join in our 30-day fundraising challenge. Help us raise $5,500 in 30 days to:
- Provide for initial outreach and marketing materials, such as website and other technology fees and printing of flyers, postcards and other marketing materials
- Help fund initial deposits necessary for securing public safety, entertainer, tent and table rental, marketing and other operational contracts
- Assist us in booking top-tier talent and entertainment at this year’s event
- Provide the necessary deposit fees for securing festival logistical items like staging, sound and generators
The generosity of community members and small businesses in our individual 30-day giving campaign this month will enable Charlotte Pride to grow its activities and, starting this year, institute our new community grants program supporting a variety of LGBTQ community organizations.
