Youth Pride Parade Fundraiser
The Bellingham Public Schools Foundation believes that every child should reach their highest potential - in the classroom and beyond. We connect the community, businesses, and parents who share in this vision.
The Foundation is proud to provide support for Youth Pride in Bellingham.
Together, we are providing the additional resources required for outstanding public schools – transforming education through generosity.
Help support Whatcom County LGBTQ+ youth by providing funding for the Whatcom Youth Pride Coalition (WYPC). The Whatcom Youth Pride Coalition is a group of volunteers whose sole mission is to celebrate and empower Whatcom County queer and transgender youth.
The WYPC hosts and promotes inclusive events and activities aimed at LGBTQ+ youth, LGBTQ+ youth allies, and LGBTQ+ families, culminating in the (now second) annual Whatcom Youth Pride Parade and Festival - an opportunity for LGBTQ+ youth, LGBTQ+ youth allies, and LGBTQ+ families to walk together through a short parade route while the community stands along the sidelines cheering them on! Immediately following the parade is a festival at Bellingham High School where there are tables for community organizations to share their resources, a stage for youth to perform, festival games for kids and food trucks for lunch!
