Manchester Pride is the charity that delivers an annual programme of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) events in Greater Manchester. This includes the Manchester Pride Spring Benefit, events recognising International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHO), our annual programme of culture, Superbia and our flagship event, The Big Weekend. As a grant-giving charity, Manchester Pride creates fundraising opportunities through these events, to support LGBT and AIDS/HIV charities and community groups in the North West and has raised over £1.4 million since 2003. In 2016 Manchester Pride grant funded 52 LGBT community groups in Greater Manchester.
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Manchester Pride.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
