As a non-profit organization, the Krewe depends on fund raising efforts by Krewe members and support from the community to produce its annual Mardi Gras Ball. At the ball we hold a collection with all proceeds going directly to the chosen charities of the year. Your underwriting helps us provide these charitable contributions to worthy causes in the GLBT community.


We have an ongoing underwriting program with benefits to those who participate. Special ball seating, Krewe mementos, and complementary admission to our events are among the benefits provided to our much appreciated supporters. For more information regarding our Underwriting program benefits and patron levels please click here. For more information regarding Underwriting, contact our Director of Fundraising, David Gandy via email at krewe@kreweofolympus.org. Thank you for your support.
