Supporting and Building Community
The Community Partners Program is open to non-profit organizations in the Bay Area. San Francisco Pride has distributed over $2.5 million dollars to our Community Partners since 1997 – thanks to beverage purchases and donations made at our event gates. Community organizations provide SF Pride with volunteers the weekend of the event, and, in return, Pride awards the organizations with proceeds from the area of their involvement. We are now accepting 2017 applications.
The DEADLINE to apply has been extended to March 31, 2017.
Beverage Partners. Organizations who work with the Beverage Program provide volunteers to operate beverage booths at the event. Register Today!
Gate Partners. Those working as Gate Partners will provide volunteers to collect donations at the festival gates as people enter the Celebration. Register Today!
Accessibility Partners. Accessibility partners ensure the proper management of Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing spaces, our wheelchair-accessible Grandstands as well as other areas of the event. Positions for Accessibility Partners are limited. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Eligibility & Requirements
The Community Partners Program is open to any 501c3 certified non-profit organization based in the nine counties of the Bay Area whose mission involves service to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender communities, seniors, youth, bullying, housing advocacy, animal welfare/rights, people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, or homelessness.
All community partners must commit to a minimum number of volunteers for working at the SF Pride event. The minimum requirement depends on the area for which the partner has been selected and varies from 6 to 12. All volunteers must attend volunteer trainings (number of meetings, dates and times to be set by Donations/Beverages management). Volunteer numbers may vary by area so be sure to check with your area coordinator during pre-event trainings.
