Mission Statement

The primary purpose for which this organization is formed is to promote public education and awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion as well as the personal rights and civil liberties of the LGBTQ+ community, to charitably meet the needs of the community, and to engage in activities that promote celebrating authenticity. Silicon Valley PRIDE is part of the global PRIDE movement and is essential in raising the awareness of social justice and visibility of the LGBTQ+ community in San Jose, Silicon Valley, and worldwide. The volunteer-run non-profit organization was founded in 1975.

Why Donate to Silicon Valley PRIDE?

We are a community-based organization that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community in the South Bay. We have been celebrating Pride in the Silicon Valley for over 47 years now, and your donation helps us continue this tradition.

The Silicon Valley PRIDE Board and subcommittees are volunteer-run. Your contribution helps financially support the costs of hosting our community-based year-round events, Pride festival and parade celebration, allowing us to offer diverse local and international entertainment and activities. We strive to keep Silicon Valley PRIDE vibrant to highlight the LGBTQ+ spectrum in its entirety. Our goal is to engage, entertain, and excite the LGBTQ community and allies by delivering music, live performances, dance, speakers, and other activation from the LGBTQ+ and ally communities, culminating in a fun and memorable experience for the entire family.


The Why

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
