PRIDE headquarters

Southern Illinois (SoIL) Pride Collective is a 501c3 charitable organization that supports our LGBTQ+ community by facilitating and hosting our annual Pride weekend in Carbondale, IL, in addition to other community-oriented events throughout the year.

Our Mission       

SoIL Pride Collective is a 501c3 organization that was formed specifically to focus on all things Pride in addition to providing support for other local LGBTQ+ groups by assisting them with community-oriented events by means of collecting and distributing supplies needed for those events, and building a volunteer base in their area.

Our organization and mission statement was accepted as a 501c3 public charity organization as of June 18th, 2023. We will serve our community by including other local groups and advocates in event planning and provide volunteer opportunities within our organization.

Be here. Be heard.

We encourage community participation at all of our events. We are always looking for volunteers, sponsors and Southern Illinois Pride PartnersTM  to assist with event planning, collecting and distributing supplies for local events, community-oriented projects and (of course) PRIDE!
