Edmonton Pride Run Endowment
This year, we are excited to announce that proceeds and donations from the Pride Run will be contributed to the newly created Edmonton Pride Run Endowment at the University of Alberta's Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS). The fund will create a lasting financial legacy by providing a source of stable funding to further the work, research, and programs of the Institute, which endeavours to improve the lives of the LGBTQ community locally, nationally, and internationally.
The University of Alberta will issue tax receipts for all donations made to the Edmonton Pride Run Endowment.
The Endowment will be administered by the University of Alberta in accordance with the:
The Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) at The University of Alberta leads groundbreaking research that affects policy development, intervention, education and community outreach for sexual and gender minorities (SGM).
Bringing research, teaching, institutional service, and community outreach together under one umbrella uniquely enables the Institute to intersect its studies and services functions in ways that create opportunities for innovative intellectual work and sustained educational and community outreach.
The Institute represents a distinct and holistic model, placing sexual and gender minority studies and services in a dynamic, interdependent relationship. Our research not only helps youth at large, but also guides professional development and education for teachers, social workers, family physicians, psychologists, guidance counselors, and other caring professionals, enabling them to be better resources and advocates for SGM youth and their families.
