We Need Your Help

Without financial support from Atlanta Area businesses and civic organizations, a parade of this magnitude would not be possible. The Parade of Ribbons Organizing Committee is soliciting financial assistance from local businesses, 501(c) grants and private donations to support the operating expenses of the 1st annual Parade of Ribbons.

Our 2017 funding goal is $50,000

An early financial commitment helps organizers plan and budget for visiting bands, trophies, parade units and general operating expenses. Sponsors of the 2018 Parade of Ribbons will be recognized in pre-event promotions, on parade day (October ), and throughout the year at pre-events leading up to the Parade of Ribbons.
