With the help of community supporters like you, Charlotte Pride Band continues to provide an open, inviting environment for musicians of all ability levels while promoting the value and respect of LGBTQIA+ people in the Charlotte metropolitan area through quality musical performances.
We believe that through music, any community can be brought together. We provide high quality performances for the enjoyment and support of our community at large so that one day, we all will live in a diverse, supportive community that is welcoming to everyone.
We value and seek your support. Charlotte Pride Band is a not-for-profit organization that gratefully accepts support from individuals and corporations. Our funding is generated from ticket sales, member dues, grant support, and individual community members. This funding offsets the cost of musical instruments, music, performance venue rentals, and helps provide sponsorship for member dues.
As we move into our eleventh season of performances, please consider a gift at one of the following levels:
Friends: up to $99
Contributors: $100 - $299
Patrons: $300 - $499
Directors: $500 - $999
With your support, we will continue to fulfill our mission, share the joy of music with others, and build bridges to the larger community. To make a tax-deductible donation, please use the donation form on this page. We will recognize your support of our 2020-21 season via our website and concert programs.

As an organization comprised of volunteer musicians and staff, we can always use a little extra help. As a result, we have three standing committees that always need a little help:
Our Marketing Committee is responsible for Charlotte Pride Band's overall marketing strategy and fulfillment. This includes the creation and distribution of all marketing materials, content creation for social media outlets, and all digital assets including photographs and logos.
The Production Committee plays an enormous role in the success of our concerts by helping to secure rehearsal and performance spaces, managing transportation of needed equipment to performances, overseeing setup/breakdown of chairs and music stands before/after rehearsals and concerts, and making sure ticketing, seating, and/or reception areas are set up prior to performances.
The Personnel Committee plays an enormous role in the success of our musicians! This committee schedules and produces social activities for the band and acts as volunteers during performances and events, freeing up the musicians and leadership team to focus on performing.
Other volunteer opportunities also exist, such as being a "band aid" during parade performances by carrying our banner or passing out water to the marchers.
Our hope is that your volunteer experience gives you a chance to be involved in our community, learn more about the workings of a non-profit organization, and build some leadership experience - while cultivating several friendships along the way.
