Partner with LGBT Friendly Companies and Grow Your Business!

GGBA’s corporate partners, and their commitment to LGBT business owners and diversity, allow us to host the workshops, seminars and member networking events that drive our chambers’ success.

GGBA has over 35 corporate partners from across the Bay Area including, Wells Fargo, Granite Solutions Group, Coca-Cola, Graton, Kaiser Permanente, San Francisco Giants, Recology, AMSI Real Estate Services, and many more.

See full list below.

Our ‘in-kind’ partnerships allow members to become more active within the GGBA and the LGBTQ business community by providing their products and services in place of dues. ‘In kind’ partnerships are ideal for companies that provide event planning services, catering, restaurants, hotels,  PR services, media companies, and press outlets.

GGBA is my first stop when I'm looking for long-term, trusted business partners, including financial planning; business, home, and health insurance; web design; and computer and tech support. I’ve also met new clients and made important professional connections at GGBA’s networking events. I value my GGBA membership.

I moved to San Francisco in 2012 and didn’t know anyone, a tough place to be when starting a new business. I soon learned of the GGBA and decided to join. Since joining, I have made countless new friends and my business growth has exploded. The resources and support that GGBA offers have been, and continue to be, indispensable to my business.

OutSmart Office Solutions belongs to 7 LGBT Chambers of Commerce throughout the US. Since 2011, we designed and furnished offices for several GGBA member businesses and we were selected as the official office supply company of the Super Bowl 50 Business Connect program. Our company has grown 30 to 40% year over year, and much of that growth can be attributed to our Advocate Level Partnership with the GGBA.
