The EDEN LGBTQ Youth Foundation traces its beginnings to EDEN San Francisco Pride Weekend which started in 2009. EDEN Pride Weekend was the brainchild of Christine De La Rosa aka Miz Chris and has been continuously one of the largest attended events for women and their allies since its inception
In 2012, the EDEN Team decided to form EDEN LGBTQ Youth Foundation, a 501(c)(3) (currently pending) to benefit LGBTQ Youth in the Greater Bay Area. All EDEN events including EDEN’s large SF Pride Weekend event held every year will benefit the Foundation with 100% of the proceeds going to fund the Foundation’s initiatives.
The mission of the EDEN LGBTQ Youth Foundation is to serve as a community, cultural and funding source for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer youth in the Greater Bay Area through grants, scholarships and initiatives.
Monies raised during the Foundation’s signature week, as well as through individual and corporate donations, go directly to educate, empower and foster the LGBTQ Youth communities throughout the Greater Bay Area.
The EDEN LGBTQ Youth Foundation is currently 501(c)(3) pending.
