2019 Aurora Pride Parade

On Friday, April 12th, Indivisible Aurora made the anguishing and difficult announcement that due to an unanticipated increase in costs, we would have to cancel the Aurora Pride Festival, including the Aurora Pride Parade.

After continued discussions with the City of Aurora and energized reactions from supporters in the community, we have decided to make a last ditch effort to raise the remaining funds needed for the Pride Parade and a couple of smaller events… and fast. So what do we need? We need $17,000 in 2 weeks!

Yes, you read that right. $17,000 in 2 weeks! No less. Why $17,000? This, alongside the $4,500 graciously provided as grants by the City of Aurora, will make up for the gap between our current fundraising and what we need to provide to the city for services and for operational costs to service providers.

Why 2 weeks?

The City of Aurora needs a FINAL decision on the Parade by April 30th for police and first responder staffing .

This is a call to our supporters. Can you help us out?

If we can't raise the entire $17,000, we can't hold the parade this year (simple as that) and every dime of the funds  collected will be put toward the Aurora Pride Parade in 2020.

All donations will follow our current sponsorship model and the perks that go along with each level. To see our sponsorship information, please see our sponsorship package . Thank you to all of our supporters for your passion and encouragement to making this event happen in 2019!

If you'd rather send us a check or money order (old school, baby!) you can send it to Indivisible Aurora, 3015 E. New York St, Suite A2-273, Aurora, IL 60504.

Your passion brought this celebration -- your celebration --  back to life. Now, let's raise money!
