2019 Community Partner Fund Recipients

In its first year, the Blue Ridge Pride Community Partner Fund awarded $7,500 in grants to twenty organizations in western North Carolina.

2019 was the first year of operation for the Blue Ridge Pride Community Partner Fund.  The fund was set up to make it easier for individuals and organizations in our community to donate to the many organizations that support us.  None of the donations made to the fund go to Blue Ridge Pride.  We awarded $7,500 in grants to 20 organizations that support our community.
