Nominations Open for Milwaukee Pride Plus One Program

We here at Milwaukee Pride, Inc., are proud to announce that the PrideFest Milwaukee 2020 nominations for our single largest reinvestment initiative are now open.

Nominate YOUR favorite community organization to be the recipient of the Plus One Program at PrideFest Milwaukee 2020.

For the last six years, when festival goers purchased a ticket for Pridefest (either online or at the gate) they were offered the option to donate extra funds to the Plus One recipient. By doing so, several organizations over the years have been granted much needed funds to help with any organizational needs.

Efforts in 2019 awarded the UW-Milwaukee LGBTQ+ Resources Center over $21,000 in funding. Many, many thanks goes towards the incredibly generous community at large. You make a difference. Whatever is raised, is matched by Milwaukee Pride.

Do you have a worthy organization in mind? A group you feel would benefit greatly with extra funding? A service, you feel needs more exposure? Let us know by filling out the form below.

The collection of songs, released in 2012, established Mary as a formidable Seattle artist and caught the attention of local hip-hop duo, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, with whom she wrote and sang the same-sex rights anthem “Same Love”.
