To be eligible for the grant Campus Pride created a video highlighting our organization as an Upstander. The video was shared through Indi.com to generate buzz for Campus Pride and our work to create safer, more LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities. Watch video.
The top 40 participating 501(c)3 organizations who submitted videos that generated the most buzz were then reviewed by a panel of judges. The judges selected 25 organizations from the top 40 buzz generating organizations to receive a $25,000 grant. Campus Pride is honored to be chosen among the 25 charities.
