About

Queens Pride House is funded by individual donations, government funding and foundations.   Our major funder is the N.Y.State Department of Health through the LGBT Health & Human Services Network coordinated by Empire State Pride Agenda Foundation (funds obtained through lobbying by the Empire State Pride Agenda -ESPA - www.prideagenda.org).   QPH thanks the New York State Assembly for their recent recommitment of funds to the network and to Governor Pataki for his proposed funding.   QPH has received or is promised funds from Councilmember Helen Sears, Councilmember Hiram Monserrate, Assemblymember Jose Peralta, Assemblymember Andrew Hevesi, and Assemblymember Ivan Lafayette from their own discretionary funding; the Paul Rapoport Foundation, the Stonewall Community Foundation, and the Verizon Foundation.  QPH received its first grant through the National Institutes of Health.   Funders look at the degree of community support and individual contributions.  Your support will provide a firm basis to apply for other funding.  Additionally, only individual private donations can be used to increase the working capital fund which is essential to our day to day operation.  In most cases we have to spend our own funds and wait to be reimbursed.  We need the funds in order to do that.  The center must raise substantial other funds from individuals and other sources.
