Thank You To Our Sponsors

Become a Sponsor

Sponsorship is a great way to promote your commitment to equal rights for all! The Charleston Pride Parade, Week, and Festival bring together thousands of participants and attendees to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community each year. These events provide a great opportunity to partner with local businesses, non-profits, and other LGBTQIA+ organizations whose mission is to bring awareness, promote diversity, and uplift the community. This year, Charleston Pride will be celebrating its 13th anniversary here in the Lowcountry and we would love to secure your support through Sponsorship!

Serve on the Board

As a member of the board, you will work with other board members to plan various fundraising events throughout the year; engage sponsors and community members; and plan and execute Pride Week events.


Help Make Charleston Pride a Reality!

A lot of time, effort, and money goes into organizing and putting on Charleston Pride. Charleston Pride Festival, Inc is funded strictly through sponsors and funds raised at events.

Due to this fact, we have to raise money throughout the year in order for Charleston Pride to be successful. If you cannot make it to one of our fundraisers, you can now donate here! Also check out our monthly donor program, Friends of Pride.

Thank you for your support!
