Invest in the fastest growing LGBTQ+ nonprofit agency in the State of Connecticut.

Since the Center first expanded it’s operations to include a staff in 2017, it has rapidly grown from a small single service nonprofit to one of Connecticut’s leading LGBTQ+ institutions with a budget of half a million dollars. With innovative artistic experiences, empowering youth-centric programming, and a vast array of social services and case management support, the Center is a vital resource and impactful influencer for the LGBTQ+ community of Greater New Haven and Connecticut. 

Contributions to the New Haven Pride Center are direct investments in the vastly diverse LGBTQ+ community. The Center prides itself in putting your money to work through programming and services that fall within one or more of our five areas of focus :

  • creating a safe space for case management and support services;
  • bringing people together for shared social experiences;
  • educational activitiesawareness building, and youth empowerment;
  • arts, culture and humanities programming; and
  • advocacy for the community.
