Dear Potential Sponsor,                                       

On behalf of Grand Rapids Pride Center and Festival Committee, I would like to invite you to take part in an upcoming sponsorship opportunity with the highly anticipated 28th Annual Grand Rapids Pride Festival.

Every year, we hold the Pride Festival during the month of June to celebrate the community’s commitment to uniting together people of all backgrounds, LGBTQ and our Allies, from across the Greater Grand Rapids region and beyond.

WE ASK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE GRAND RAPIDS LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, TRANSGENDER (LGBTQ) COMMUNITY BY BECOMING A SPONSOR .

Brand loyalty* within the LGBT community is especially high. 

  • 55% of LGBT consumers will choose to do business with companies that are committed to the diversity/equal treatment of the LGBT community.
  • 70% of LGBT adults stated they would pay a premium for a product from a company that supports the LGBT community.
  • 78% of LGBT adults and their friends, family and relatives would switch to brands that are known to be LGBT-friendly.
  • 23% of LGBT Adults report higher than median household income.**
  • In addition to being a part of our celebration, proceeds from the event will serve as a funding source for Grand Rapids Pride Center and future Pride Festivals. 

 

 

The Pride Committee is happy to announce that this year’s celebration will be the biggest and best Pride in Grand Rapids history.
