Become a Sponsor
The Pride Center of Western New York welcomes organizations and businesses, as well as, individuals who are interested in becoming a sponsor. The Pride Center offers corporate partnerships that reach beyond single-event fundraisers to provide consistent and meaningful opportunities that directly engage all of the communities we serve. Corporate sponsorship is vital to the success of the Center’s fundraising events and programs. When you support the Pride Center, your gift supports the continuation of the work we do to make Western New York a safe, healthy, and satisfying place for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer people to live, work, and establish their families. These critical revenue-generating yearlong sponsorship opportunities offer many benefits to help our partners build or strenghthen alliances with the Pride Center and to be a part of ensuring that those in our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community have access to a dedicated space and programming.
All of us recognize that difficult choices must be made when resources are limited and opportunities for charitable giving and community involvement are less abundant. We hope this menu of giving opportunities becomes a useful tool for you as you plan your giving for the upcoming year. Whatever oppportunity - or opportunities- most appeal to you, your support will strengthen our efforts to deliver high quality services to those we serve.
Why Brand With Us?
At the Center, we believe that sponsorship branding should reach beyond annual fundraisers and instead provide ongoing and constant opportunities that directly engage your target audience. We recognize traditional business objectives to increase profits and look to develop opportunities that result in positive returns on investment for your company.
Corporate sponsorship is fundamental to the success of our fundraising events and programs. The Pride Center is able to fulfill its mission due in part to our corporate sponsors. We encourage our members to patronize these businesses and thank them for their support of the Pride Center and the LGBTQ communities of Western New York.
