Solidarity Fund

Solidarity Fund

Every year Copenhagen Pride supports a number of Danish and international activities related to LGBTI+ life and rights through our Solidarity Fund. LGBTI+ organisations and projects from all over the world that need financial support can apply. We are immensely proud of being able to provide this support.

Our financial support, whilst limited, is prioritised for Pride organisations and other organisations who cannot access regular funding streams. We cannot provide financial support to individuals. 

Like many organisations we are facing challenges in fundraising and this directly impacts the amounts we have available to make awards from the Solidarity Fund in 2024. However, we still encourage organisations to apply.

If you wish to apply, first please send an email to Steve Taylor, Head of Secretariat, at [email protected] with the following information:

  • Details of the organisation and its history
  • The amount needed (NB: we very rarely make awards of more than €2.000)
  • Information on why the funding is needed, and where else you have tried to find the funding
  • A breakdown of the budget

You will receive a reply within ten days and he will advise on the next steps.

Here are some examples of what and who we have supported:


  • Kalundborg Pride (April)
  • Travel expenses for Danish Prides to attend a Pride network meeting in Copenhagen (February)
