Fundraising & Events

Reading Pride is committed to remaining a free event to all, but as we receive minimal public funding, this is no easy task. We are eternally grateful to our generous sponsors and donors who assist with fundraising for our event throughout the year. Without this help, we wouldn't be able to stage our annual festival.


There are many ways you can donate to Pride, below are some of the ways:

PayPal Donation

PayPal offers a simple means to make a one-off or a regular donation to help us further our on-going projects such as MyUmbrella LGBT+ and help keep the Love Unites Parade & Festival free-to-attend.

Donate via PayPal

Cheque or Postal Order

Prefer the old fashioned way? Not a problem! You can also donate by cheque made payable to Reading Pride.

Please do not send cash through the post.

Reading Pride,
21 South Street,

What is Gift Aid?

Donating through Gift Aid means charities can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won't cost you any extra.

If you pay tax at the higher or additional rate, you can claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation.
