In 2010, the Pride and Remembrance Foundation was established as a charitable foundation. The Pride and Remembrance Association was instrumental in its incorporation. The Foundation's mandate is to provide financial support to registered charities that benefit the LGBTQ+ community. These benefits may include individual projects, services and/or activities that provide health, educational, legal, social athletic, cultural or other charitable benefits. Since 2010, the Foundation has supported the AIDS Committee of Toronto, the Triangle Program of the Toronto District School Board, the 519 Church Street Community Centre, the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, the LGBT Youthline, HALCO, and the Windsor Pride Committee. 


The Foundation works closely with the Association in support of the pride & remembrance run.  The Foundation welcomes creative applications from charitable organizations that are interested in partnering with the Foundation and Association in promoting and supporting the annual pride & remembrance run.
