About Us

ABOUT US

The Louisville Pride Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that promotes Louisville as one community that celebrates diversity, fosters inclusion for all and embraces the LGBTQA community. The foundation seeks promote this unity between LGBTQ and straight allies by engaging in a conversation with the broader community about what makes us one while celebrating what makes us different. A portion of the proceeds from the foundation’s activities go to benefit local youth programs. A list of beneficiaries is posted annually following the Louisville Pride Festival in the fall. If you would like to suggest a potential beneficiary, please contact us.
