The Pride Foundation is an LGBT philanthropic foundation in the Pacific Northwest. It was founded in 1985, and issued $785,000 in grants in 2007.

On February 24, 2008, Pride Foundation announced that former Microsoft employee Ric Weiland (d. 2006) had bequeathed $65 Million to support gay rights and HIV/AIDS organizations - the largest ever single bequest for LGBT community. Through his estate, Weiland established a fund at the Pride Foundation that will provide $46 million over the next eight years to 10 national LGBT and HIV/AIDS organizations that he personally selected and $19 million directly to Pride Foundation for their scholarships and grants supporting the Northwest's LGBT community.[1][2]
