INBA (Inland Northwest Business Alliance)

The Inland Northwest Business Alliance (INBA) is Spokane's Gay Chamber of Commerce with members in Eastern Washington and North Idaho. We network closely with our sister chamber in Seattle, the Greater Seattle Business Association as well as other GLBT chambers at regional and national leadership conferences. The alliance is an affiliate chamber of National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).

The INBA was established in 1994 with a charter group of 25 members as a 501(c)6 non-profit organization to network and socialize in a safe environment. Today the INBA has grown to over 120 members of gay and gay-friendly professionals. INBA Members agree to abide by our Business Standards of Ethics and Conduct. Membership is open to all businesses, professionals and individuals who subscribe to the purposes of the alliance.

Odyssey Youth Center is the only all inclusive lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and straight-allied (LGBTQA) youth center in the Spokane, WA area, supporting youth and young adults ages 14-21. Initially begun as a program of the Spokane Regional Health District in 1992, OYC became an independent, nonprofit 501(c)3 agency in 2001. Since its independence, the organization has worked to become much more vocal in support of LGBTQA youth and has significantly increased its local support base. Odyssey's mission is to work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth and their allies to provide a safe place, education and advocacy to promote positive growth and self empowerment, working towards a future where LGBTQ youth and young adults grow into confident, successful, productive and contributing members of our community.

Pride Foundation, Inland NW

Pride Foundation was founded in late 1985 by four committed individuals, who believed that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community needed its own philanthropic organization. In 1987 the Pride Foundation awarded its first grants to organizations totaling $7,654. Now the foundation grants hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. In 1993 the Pride Foundation started a scholarship program, giving $3,680 that first year. Since then the program has become one of the nation's largest LGBT scholarship funds. Since its founding, the Pride Foundation has put more than $8 million to work building equality for the LGBT community.
