Without the support of generous individual donors who believe in the diversity of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) culture and community,  there would not be a PrideFest.

Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to Milwaukee Pride, Inc. so that we may continue to bring you one of the largest, most dynamic and longest-running LGBT+ pride festivals in the nation.

We now accept online donations, powered by Square.



The Legacy Fund

PrideFest would like to recognize donors to the Legacy Fund, which provided critical support for the festival during its 2003/2004 restructuring. These individuals and organizations – affectionately called the Legacy Angels, friends and supporters – believed in the festival during its most challenging moments, and they backed that belief with financial support that literally allowed the festival to continue. In 2004, PrideFest honored the Legacy donors with a monument that will be on display during this year’s festival. It is a testament to their conviction that PrideFest plays a vital role in the history and progress of the LGBT community.
