Founders Fund

The Victorian Pride Centre Founders Fund is a once in a lifetime opportunity to future proof the security of invaluable LGBTIQ+ resources and ensure a safe and inclusive meeting place that will promote equality, diversity, and wellbeing.

The Victorian Pride Centre will advance the social and cultural capital of our diverse community and build a more inclusive and fairer Australia for generations to come.

The Victorian Pride Centre will be a place of celebration, safety and connection where everyone is welcome and valued.

To raise vital capital required to construct the landmark building, the Board of the Victorian Pride Centre have launched a Founders Fund.

Why become a Founder

The Founders Fund has been established to raise vital funds required to create a safe permanent home for the LGBTIQ+ community at the Victorian Pride Centre.

So much more than a building, the Victorian Pride Centre will be a testament to the strength, resilience and capacity of us as Australian citizens. Your investment will ensure that all of our community is resourced with vital support and ongoing connection.

The Victorian Pride Centre will be a beacon of inclusion, respect, and support, a celebration of pride and equality for all.

Your investment will preserve history and secure a future where people are valued for who they are.
