June 2021 Charity of the Month

In partnership with the Minnesota Wild, we are the sponsor of the Minnesota Wild Charity of the Month Program. Throughout the NHL season, we feature a new charity each month. This months selected charity is Twin Cities Pride!

Twin Cities Pride creates events for the LGBTQ+ community to come together to celebrate our diverse heritage, educate and create increase awareness of issues, foster inclusion, and celebrate achievements in equality. TCP operates with a team of two full time staff members and a group of dedicated volunteer staff and board members to create our own events and support events other LGBTQ+ nonprofits host.


Empower every LGBTQ+ person to live as their true self.


A future where all LGBTQ+ people are valued and celebrated for who they are.



We value the trust held in the Twin Cities Pride organization. As they grow, so will their efforts to identify areas for improvement. This will include, but not be limited to, programming and  communications. TCP will always seek the truth and expect the same from their partners.


Twin Cities Pride values the strength and power in their collective self. Their goal is to make an inclusive, accessible, and safe space for all LGBTQ+ people and their allies. Through the scope and diversity of our programing, TCP encourages everyone to feel empowered to express their true authentic self.


TCP values continuous learning as an organization. Their efforts will include sharing our generational knowledge and ongoing evolution as a people and a movement. They will create awareness on current issues, and we promise to grow to be better leaders within the LGBTQ+ Pride movement.


We value and respect the different perspectives of TCP stakeholders. Twin Cities Pride promises to listen and strive to create an environment of understanding, to amplify each of our voices, and forge a path forward as a unified group.
