Pride and Remembrance Foundation
In 2010, the Pride and Remembrance Foundation was established as a charitable foundation. The Pride and Remembrance Association was instrumental in its incorporation.
The Foundation’s mandate is to provide financial support to registered charities that benefit the LGBT community. These benefits may include individual projects, services and/or activities that provide health, educational, legal, social athletic, cultural or other charitable benefits.
Since 2010, the Foundation has supported the AIDS Committee of Toronto, the Triangle Program of the Toronto District School Board, the 519 Church Street Community Centre, the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, the LGBT Youthline, HALCO, and the Windsor Pride Committee.
The Foundation has also established a scholarship for LGBT students at the University of Toronto and has supported the annual Bill Graham Award.
The Foundation is now welcoming individual applications for projects that provide an enduring benefit for the LGBT community and that may reflect the themes of pride and/or remembrance. Get the Bill Graham Award application now.
The Foundation works closely with the Association in support of the Pride and Remembrance Run. The Foundation welcomes creative applications from charitable organizations that are interested in partnering with the Foundation and Association in promoting and supporting the annual Pride and Remembrance Run.
