Annual Fund

The New Haven Pride Center’s Annual Fund doesn’t just sustain operations today but also builds the foundation Center’s future, as well as gives the Center vital funds that allow us to create new programming and enhance existing Center activities. By investing in the Center’s Annual Fund you are directly contributing to events, community service, and advocacy for New Haven and the surrounding region’s LGBTQ+ community.
