Weʼve raised £339 to help us with the costs of the very first Isle of Wight Pride 2017, to put on the best possible event to meet your expectations!

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are excited to have the opportunity to help facilitate what we are sure will be a very special event!
Pride events are a strong reminder to those who identify as LGBTQ who have lived through countless historical struggles including criminalisation of homosexuality, the AIDS epidemic, Section 28, and the prejudice and abuse felt by so many as they struggle to take pride in who they were born to be. There is still a lot of work to do internationally as well as making equality in law a reality in this country.
Our vision for IW Pride is for this to be an opportunity to celebrate and for us to take pride in how far we have come, how proud we are of our beautiful Island, just as importantly we need to highlight the work that still needs to be done.
WE NEED YOUR HELP...
Weʼre aiming to raise £2,500 to help us towards the costs of Isle of Wight Pride 2017.
We all know that in times of austerity, the cost of anything nice is often more than we would like . That too could be said of organising an event like IW Pride. To assist with the cost of putting on a fun, inclusive family friendly Pride Event and to make it a subtainable project that will last long into the future becoming a legacy for generations to come, this will be no walk in the park and we are going to need all the kindness and generosity we can find.
This is where we need to ask amazing people like you to dig deep and find all you can to donate and help make IW Pride a huge success.
Without your support it will be a stuggle, we're not going to lie and of course we are all working extreemly hard behind the scenes to find sponsors and corporate donations to build up a healthy balance. We will also be holding events and fundraisers but every donation we receive now and in the lead up to the event will help this be the biggest and best Pride it can possibly be.
