Nonprofit Spotlight: Campus Pride

Network for Good works with so many amazing nonprofits and we want to introduce you to them and the great work they are doing! We’re rebooting our Nonprofit Spotlight series this week and I want you to meet one of my favorite customers, Campus Pride.

Meet Campus Pride

Nonprofit Spotlight: Campus Pride

In his elevator pitch, Steve Windmeyer, Campus Pride founder and executive director, will tell you that his organization builds future leaders and safer campuses. What won’t make it into the conversation between the first and second floors is all of the dynamic ways Campus Pride does this. Through leadership training, advocacy workshops, on-campus climate studies, and college fairs, Campus Pride is making a tangible difference in the lives of LGBTQ college students.

Their Mission

Their mission to create safer, more inclusive college campuses influenced by LGBTQ students was born in 2001 as an online community. In 2006, after expanding their focus both online and off, they became an independent 501(c)3 and haven’t stopped growing since.

Their Funding Challenge + Fix

Three years ago Campus Pride realized their funding mix wasn’t ideal: 80% of funding was from program fees and 20% was from individual donors. To help balance out their funding mix, they launched a new strategic plan with a focus on individual giving. Fast forward three years and they’ve grown their funding ratio to 50% program fees and 50% from individual donors!

We love seeing organizations embrace individual giving because it provides a stronger, more stable funding stream. Bravo, Campus Pride! Keep up the great work!

As one of our “Spotlight” nonprofits, we encourage you to take a look at the great work they’re doing and spread the love by following them on Twitter and liking them on Facebook.
