Pride United

A Matter of Pride. A Sense of Belonging.

United Way of the Wine Country’s Pride United is the first LGBTQ+ affinity group West of the Mississippi!

We aim to identify, support, and advocate for the diverse needs of our LGBTQ+ community by advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion through funding of organization’s work related to education, health, and financial stability.

Our members and supporters give to a collective fund and award grants to nonprofit organizations in the counties we serve. 

Pride United was originally known as the Sonoma County LGBTQI Giving Circle, founded in 2014. As the Giving Circle, we raised almost $200,000 to support local organizations.
