This year our Pride celebration will be on July 31st, 2021. We’re planning an in-person concert. Details coming soon.
A huge thank you to everyone who donated during the Kitsap Great Give and throughout the year. Your support means the world to us.
We raised $1,695 in the Kitsap Great Give. If you missed out we always accept donations through our website.
Kitsap Pride’s mission is to celebrate, support, and unite the LGBTQ+ community in Kitsap County.
Last year we pivoted to a Drive Thru Pride event and sent Pride in a Box home to our socially distant friends. We were able to pull it off thanks to the generous donations from our community. Thank you!
It’s early giving time and we’d appreciate your support again. Donations make it possible for us to respond to the ever changing conditions and to ensure we can do things like providing free Pride kits to all the youth who attend.
December 1st is #GivingTuesday. A day for you to unleash your generosity on non-profits that serve your community.
2020 has been a hard year for non-profits like ours which haven’t been able to do many of the fundraising events we usually do. Your donation can help ensure that we can do more in the coming year.
If you donate on Facebook, they will pay all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to Kitsap Pride. We also have a donation option on our Square store.

This year we’re giving thanks for our chosen families who we may not be able to gather with in person but we know that we are in each others’ hearts.
We’re giving thanks to our volunteers who navigated shifting phases to think about how we could have a Pride celebration.
We’re giving thanks to our local LGBTQ+ community who have shown so much love and support throughout. Thank you for the donations and well wishes. We feel blessed.
We’re giving thanks to our sponsors who stood by us with flexibility and understanding. A huge thank you to the Suquamish Tribe, the Port Gamble S’Klallams Tribe, the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, UnitedHealthcare, Kitsap Public Health District, and Sirens.
And we’re giving thanks that 2021 is shaping up to be an entirely different year filling our hearts with so much hope.
