A contribution to Mardi Gras is a contribution to our communities

Support Mardi Gras

Our Parade and Festival are loud, proud celebrations of our vibrant communities. But there’s so much more we do year-round for the LGBTQIA+ Community.  And with your support there’s much more we can do….

A Contribution to Mardi Gras is a Contribution to the Community

Each year, through partnerships and donations, we deliver hundreds of thousands of dollars directly to LGBTQIA+ community groups and individuals to help them achieve their goals and fund new projects.

Since 2016, we’ve provided over $1.2 million in funds and support to the LGBTQI+ community.

A donation to Mardi Gras can change the life of an LGBTQI+ person.

*All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.
