Celebrating diversity and promoting inclusivity in York Region
Why Sponsor?
York Pride Fest relies on sponsors for the provision of services, equipment and venues as well as the donation of funds.
Volunteering and sponsorship are vital ways in which people, organizations and companies can contribute to the success of our pride week events.
Our sponsors also benefit, as:
  • Supporting LGBT organizations is among the top ways to impact LGBT consumers.
  • Three-quarters (74%) of LGBT US adults are likely to consider brands that support nonprofits and/or causes that are important to them as an LGBT person.
  • Presently the LGBT consumer market of York Region is unexploited by local businesses. In the absence of competition, pioneers have the best opportunity to capture this untapped niche market.
  • Business sponsoring York Pride Fest can easily foster longer-term partnerships with local LGBT-related service providers, to facilitate ongoing marketing to York Region's LGBT consumers.
  • Our sponsors enjoy discounted or free year-round advertising on GayYorkRegion.com, the number one focal point of the region's LGBT community.
