Category: Equality & Human Rights
DescriptionThe Foundation’s Local Funding Partnerships has announced a special solicitation, Peaceful Pathways: Reducing Exposure to Violence. The program offers matching grants of $50,000 to $200,000 per project. To be eligible a project must be nominated by a diversity-focused funder, whose grantmaking targets an underserved group. Underserved groups include communities of color such as immigrants; people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender; or people who are isolated because of their race, tribe, ethnic group, gender, or rural/frontier location. Proposals must demonstrate how the new project is culturally appropriate leveraging the community’s own characteristic wisdom, skills, language, and cultural resources to reduce violence in that community. Eligible projects could reflect a community’s priorities by focusing on interpersonal or public violence, on the behavior of intimate partners or of gangs, on the trauma of war or on abuse in the workplace. The Foundation is accepting proposals online and will continue to do so through 2009. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
Contact information and additional details are available to members of the Society.
