Dublin Pride has partnered with The Community Foundation for Ireland, a registered and trusted charity, to create the Dublin Pride Fund and we’re asking everyone who has ever joined our march to do what they can this June to support our community organisations and the services they provide.

Dublin Pride is one of the biggest fundraising events of the year for many LGBTQ+ organisations, you may not even realise just how much you’ve supported your community over the years just by coming to Pride. All those tickets to events, the flags, t-shirts, Pride themed cupcakes and milkshakes you bought, they all add up and without even thinking about it you probably gave €20 to different community groups over the weekend, now imagine 100,000 people all doing the same thing.

Right now, many of our community organisations are struggling; demand for their services has increased but at the same time opportunities to raise funds by running Pride events or even simple bucket collections are no longer possible. This is especially true for smaller organisations that don’t receive government funding or corporate sponsorship and rely on individual members of the community supporting them.

We know, that next year, our Parade and Festival will be back, even bigger and on the streets of Dublin, but we need to make sure that no one gets left behind. When we come back, we come back together.

Funds donated through Dublin Pride Fund will be distributed in support of LGBTI+ charities and non-profit organisations by The Community Foundation for Ireland. If you’re part of a community organisation that would like to be included as a beneficiary of the fund, contact community@dublinpride.ie. Stripe is our partner for online payments processing. The Community Foundation for Ireland is charged a Stripe transaction processing fee at a reduced charity rate on your donation to the Dublin Pride Fund. The Community Foundation for Ireland is a registered charity (Charities Regulator Number: 20044886) with registered address:  29 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2.  Your details are held in accordance with The Community Foundation for Ireland’s Privacy Policy.

How the fund will work
We want to make giving as simple as possible and we want you to know exactly where your donation is going and what it will be used for. All donations received are processed by The Community Foundation for Ireland who adhere to the highest standards of governance and accountability for charities, Dublin Pride does not take any portion of the donations. At the end of Pride, all donations received will be divided between LGBTQ+ community organisations and projects. If you’re part of a community organisation that would like to be included as a beneficiary of the fund, contact community@dublinpride.ie

Can my business support?
Absolutely, you can make a direct donation and avail of any tax benefits for donations to a charity. You can also promote the fund by letting your staff know about it.

Can I run my own Pride event to raise funds?
Yes, you can even run your own Pride event just to celebrate Pride, but if you can use it to support your community, even better. We do have a couple of important requests if you are planning your own Pride event with friends or work colleagues.

  • Please follow all Covid guidelines in place, what you do over Pride can impact your whole community. Don’t ruin it for everyone else.
  • If you’re planning a fundraising event, either in a personal capacity or through your business, please don’t use our logos or branding without our permission. Dublin LGBTQ Pride and The Community Foundation for Ireland adhere to highest standards of accountability and transparency in all our fundraising activities and cannot be associated with any activities that breach the codes of the Charities Regulator or go against the principles of our organisations.

I already donate to an LGBTQ+ organisation.
That’s great, thank you and please keep it up if you can. A main purpose of the fund is to make up for the lost income community organisations generate from Pride events and activities. They still need your support all year round. There are lots of wonderful organisations working tirelessly in our community, visit our website to learn more about them and how you can support their work.
