Emergent Fund

Category

Social Change


Description

The Fund was established after the 2016 election to help move quick resources to communities that were and continue to be under attack by federal policies and priorities Ė women of color, immigrants, Muslim and Arab-American communities, African Americans, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/queer communities, and all people of color. The Fund focuses on grassroots organizing and power building in communities of color who are facing injustice based on racial, ethnic, religious, and other forms of discrimination. The Fundís grants are considered for the following: efforts that support emergent strategies that help communities respond to rapidly changing conditions, including resisting new or amplified threats and building power to move a proactive agenda; and efforts seeking long-term social justice e and economic justice in a political and social climate that seeks to dismantle such efforts. The Fund will also contribute seed grants of $3,000 to $5,000 to small scale projects just getting off the ground. Applications will be accepted through 2018. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
