Campus Pride received a $75,000 four-year renewal grant from The Palette Fund for general operating support. This funding enables Campus Pride to continue to build our operations and programs across the next four years.
“Thank you Palette Fund for this four-year grant that allows us to build and plan our growth to support even more LGBTQ youth across the country reflecting the diversity of our movement,” said Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride. “We look forward to the next four years and all the positive change.”
Campus Pride has the largest Student Leader Network in the country of active college students impacting their communities and campuses. The grant from The Palette Fund focuses on strategic efforts within Campus Pride’s Student Leader Network to build capacity as well as with Campus Pride’s leadership programs (i.e. Camp Pride).
The Palette Fund was launched in 2008 to honor the life and philanthropic legacy of Rand Harlan Skolnick. Founded by Terrence Meck and Peter Benassi, Rand’s partner and his best friend, the foundation has become a source of support for institutions and leaders working to build healthy and thriving communities. Since its inception, The Palette Fund has provided over $5 million in grants to over 125 ground breaking organizations throughout the United States and abroad.
