Sponsor

Kamloops Pride cannot operate without significant support from the community through sponsorship from individuals, community organizations and businesses like yours.

Become a Sponsor

As a sponsor, you, your organization, or business will have a unique opportunity to have a hand in supporting human rights and equality for members of the 2SLGBTQPIA+ community in Kamloops. Community members will recognize your participation as a statement of acceptance and inclusivity.​

We hope that you will consider supporting Kamloops Pride by continuing to fight discrimination, promote diversity, and build an inclusive and positive environment for our community today and into the future.

Sponsorship Scoring

Sponsorship applications will be reviewed by a small team of Kamloops Pride volunteers and we do our best to ensure that each Sponsor aligns with our values, our Sponsorship Matrix, and the 2SLGBTQPIA+ and intersecting communities. However, we can only use the information submitted to us by each organization or brought to our attention by the community. Kamloops Pride will do our best to score each Sponsor fairly based on the information that we have. We trust that Sponsors will answer the application questions truthfully and completely, to the best of their knowledge. 

 

We are committed to approaching decisions from a variety of perspectives to ensure safety and celebration for our community members, all while balancing budgetary needs to pull off events and a Pride Week Festival. We have also committed to move away from a title sponsorship model to address corporatization in an effort to ensure Pride celebrations remain in the spirit of how they were started, as much as possible.

The matrix is used to rate potential sponsors against certain criteria:

  • The business or organization actively supports the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in Kamloops

  • The business or organization does not sell products that harm the 2SLGBTQIA+ community or intersecting communities

  • The business or organization has policies that encourage diversity and inclusion as a whole, but with particular regard to sexual orientation and/or gender identity/expression

  • The business or organization has not had any reported incidents of homophobia, transphobia, or discrimination towards any other marginalized communities, that were not addressed and rectified in a way that ensures no further harm to the complainant(s), and has not partnered or made contributions to businesses, organizations, groups or political campaigns that have

  • The business or organization has not placed implicit or explicit conditions on Kamloops Pride in exchange for sponsorship
