Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 and grants of up to $20,000 to USA nonprofit organizations, groups, and coalitions for social justice activities and projects. Funding is intended for programs within the focus areas of direct action, community mobilization, and healing justice. The purpose of the grant program is to support the leadership of young women of color, trans, gender non-conforming, queer, and intersex youth under 35 in social movements.

Criteria:

  • Youth Leadership: Young women of color and/or trans, gender non-conforming, intersex activists, and/or queer youth under 35 are a core part of planning and decision-making processes. Campaigns, efforts, or organizations are led by and for communities impacted by the event or situation you're responding to.
  • Gender Justice Focus: Your political analysis and project show how the issue(s) you're responding to address or are connected to patriarchy, transphobia, homophobia, gender inequity, or gender-based violence. Gender Justice activism includes racial justice, economic justice, immigration justice, reproductive justice, health and HIV/AIDS justice, trans/intersex/queer justice, disability justice, healing justice, anti-violence, and/or anti-criminalization work.
  • Community Power Building: Your proposal's strategies and activities help build power for youth-led gender justice activism, organizing, and/or healing in your communities, and are connected to the goal(s), outcome(s), and/or changes you want as a result of your proposed actions.
  • Urgency or Time-Sensitivity: The event or situation you're responding to was unanticipated, requires urgent or timely action, and/or leverages recent attention or media coverage.
  • Organizational Need: Organizations with budgets under $500,000 and that are based in areas with limited access to philanthropic resources are prioritized.

The Fund may support:

  • Actions against criminalization and violence
  • Urgent community organizing or direct action
  • Unanticipated legislative or ballot initiative campaigns
  • Leadership training or participatory action research
  • Healing and healing justice work
  • Legal or bail fees
  • Marches or rallies
  • Conflict mediation/resolution
