In June 2017, members of supporter groups in Chattanooga and Detroit launched a simple challenge to their friends: for every home goal scored by their team in the month of June, pledge a few dollars per goal that would go to support local LGBTQ-embracing organizations. A fun and unique way to celebrate Pride month, to embrace the diversity within the soccer supporters and to contribute to causes within their own communities. Over the course of a few days, supporters in other cities made their own pledges.

After seeing the impact that a few Tweets, Facebook posts, and Pride-themed accessories on the capo stands could have, we’re making PrideRaiser an annual thing. It is our goal to take PrideRaiser national so that supporter groups across the entire country are supporting their clubs, celebrating Pride month and raising money for local LGBTQ causes.
