Each year, Dallas Pride announces a call for beneficiary applications encouraging eligible organizations to apply. Up to 5 local beneficiaries may be selected to receive proceeds. Simply meeting criteria for eligibility, however, does not guarantee that an organization will be selected. Applicants are evaluated through a structured selection process.
Eligibility is limited to community based organizations with documented non-profit [501(c)] status utilizing the majority of its funds for direct programs, services, or activities that provide significant support to the North Texas LGBT community.
Dallas Pride rates each applicant on financial soundness and organizational health and stability as well as service to the North Texas LGBT community, including the quality and impact of its programs, services, and activities. In addition, the board considers the applicant’s ability to meet the requirements of Dallas Tavern Guild participation and, for past beneficiaries, how well they had previously met expectations.
Applications will be accepted until March 29, 2019.
