There are a range of options available for contributing to the Pride Centre.
Our Centre is more than just bricks and mortar. The Pride Centre will prove to be a safe community space with a sustainable future that will house the major LGBTI organisations, and over 70 community groups that underpin our community life.
The Victorian Pride Centre Ltd is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission.
The latest exciting opportunity to contribute is through our Founders Fund.

Wills and Bequests
You can leave a lasting legacy and remember the Victorian Pride Centre in your Will.
Your bequest will be acknowledged publicly depending on your wishes and you will receive regular communications about news and developments at the Pride Centre.

Contributory Investment Arrangements
The Victorian Pride Centre is a ‘safe space’ to invest in the LGBTI community. We hold freehold title to the property on Fitzroy Street, St Kilda.
Individuals and companies can take the opportunity to get in on the “ground floor” and invest in the Centre and its social benefits. This will take the form of an asset secured by a mortgage or other investment arrangement. Your capital in the Centre will be maintained and the level of mortgage or other lending will be lower than that of property trusts. You will receive a combination of a net return formula from the Centre’s commercial tenancies, and agreed social outcomes. Investors may choose in the future to convert their investment to a bequest or donation. The minimum investment will be $50,000.
This option to support the Victorian Pride Centre’s future will become available from late 2018. More details will be provided here as this program is developed.
