This is our TENTH YEAR as one of Western New York’s premier foundations! embrace Western New York formed in 2008 in response to the withdrawal of Empire State Pride Agenda from needing the support of the annual Buffalo Brunch. In typical “Western New York perspective,” we decided to go it alone, continue the event, and turn the profits back to our own community.
Over the past ten years embrace Western New York has awarded nearly $165,000 in support locally!! Embrace is the ONLY organization that awards educational scholarships to the local LGBTQ community and Allies who are attending trade school, two-year colleges or earning their bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate degrees! Additionally, embrace has supported others through grants, sponsorships and advertising.
Join us as we celebrate US and YOU!!
