“The Pride Centre will be a place that will belong to all of us. Becoming a donor will help make it possible for the whole community to come together to share ideas, collaborate and celebrate our diversity. It will be a legacy for future generations. Make a gift and let’s help each other be a stronger community.”

Lisa Watts, Executive Director, The Conversation

Where will my money go?

By supporting the Victorian Pride Centre you are creating a safe, permanent home for people, families and communities as well as the LGBTIQ organisations that support and celebrate them. Your donation however big or small, will go directly to:

  • Construction of the landmark building.
  • Building the facilities required by resident LGBTIQ community organisations.
  • Creating inviting and exciting spaces for us all to enjoy.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to preserve the history of our community and secure its future. Your support will create incredible opportunities to tens of thousands of community members each year. Together, we can stand proud knowing that we are making a difference.

Patrons Program

To be launched in 2019/20, the Patrons Program will be your opportunity to contribute to the ongoing prosperity of the Victorian Pride Centre at a very special individual level. As a Pride Centre Patron you will be recognised as an inner-circle supporter of the Pride Centre and you will proudly carry with you the knowledge that you are making a valuable difference to the lives of many members of the LGBTQI community. Foundation Members will be entitled to Gold Patron status as a discounted cost.

“Melbourne will soon get a Pride Centre that will make us all proud. More than just validation, this new centre will support our community in so many nurturing and nourishing ways. I’m so excited and so proud that our government and community have had the foresight and cleverness to get this happening. Let’s all get behind this brilliant Centre.”

Adam Elliott, Academy Award Winning Animation Director

Invest in the Pride Centre

Foundation Supporter and Unit Trust

This is your opportunity to be a Foundation Supporter and invest in the Victorian Pride Centre. Your investment will provide critical financial support to the development of the Pride Centre right now, when we need it, and in addition to your social outcome return, your investment will be converted to a right to share in the value of the building.

In addition to your financial investment, your commitment will set you apart amongst the ranks of the LGBTQI community. If you choose, your generous support will be memorialised in perpetuity and allow you access to a special coterie of likeminded, passionate and equally devoted supporters of our community as well as VIP access to special events and community leaders.

To find out more, ask for our Information Memorandum by contacting the Fundraising Director at founders@pridecentre.org.au

“For me, becoming a Foundation Supporter means 20 years of connection to what I believe will become the loved home of our community – a place for my passionate capital to be invested. It’s nice to think that the more I patronise the Centre, the more successful it becomes, and the more my investment can grow.”
