June kicks off the LGTBQ+ pride celebrations! For the next 30 days, get ready to be overwhelmed by every color of the rainbow, as those who are out and proud celebrate their rights to be who they were created to be.
Major brands use Pride month as a way to show their support for the community. In addition to marketing items that show the various LGBTQ+ flags, they’ve also decided to donate the proceeds to a bunch of organizations that help displaced members of the community acquired shelter, education, healthcare, and much more.
If you want to do some intentional spending to help out the LGBTQ+ population, then you’ll want to pay close attention to this post. I’ve complied a list of 10 brands who will donate most, if not all, of their proceeds to organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community.

Although the sales made from this collection won’t go to a specific cause or organization, the brand as a whole is supporting Athlete Ally, an org that celebrates LGBTQ inclusion in sports.
How cute is this Levi’s jacket?! Pronouns have become an intricate part of how we introduce ourselves to one another. This jacket is a great way to help get the conversation started.
With every purchase from the Levi’s pride collection, 100% of the proceeds will go to OutRight Action International, a nonprofit who’s goal is to advocate for LGBTQ+ rights across the world.

Disney is another brand that has always shown support to the LGTBQ+ community. This year, The Walt Disney Company will make donations to a variety of LGBTQ+ organizations, like GLSEN, a national org that focuses on maintaining a safe, supportive space for LGBTQ+ students in their learning environments.
I love this simple yet chic crop top from Reebok. The brand has an amazing Pride collection that includes sneakers, tops, shorts, and other cut outfits. To show their support for the LGTBQ+ community, Reebok will be donating to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, an organization that advocates for people to be able to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence.
