Christopher Street West/LA PRIDE upholds a common practice of Pride venues across the country, allowing volunteers to make a donation to community based non-profits in exchange for an individual’s time donated on their behalf. As an additional reward, individuals that donate their time receive festival admission to personally thank them for volunteering.

The Community Working Grants Program is a coordinated effort that brings in many of the volunteers who make each year’s event possible while returning money to the community. Fundraising for your organization is easier than ever; any non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status can participate. The organization works with CSW to bring volunteers to work a minimum 4-hour festival or parade shift. The volunteers get free entry to the festival and a volunteer tee shirt. A donation is made to each organization based on the volunteer hours worked.
