Deadline: 16 October 2019
The Ben & Jerry’s Foundation is currently accepting applications for its Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Program to offer general or project support to non-profit organizations throughout the United States.
Lasting change occurs when Social Justice Movements are built from the ground up and grassroots groups come together across sectors and constituencies to work for the common principles of Human Rights and Justice for All. The program supports organizations that share and embody this theory of change.
While broad goals are to further social and environmental justice and support sustainable and just food systems, they focus on the types of activities and strategies an organization uses for creating social change rather than on the specific issues the organization is addressing.
- Community & ally outreach
- Leadership development
- Constituent empowerment &
- Popular education
- Root cause analysis
- Power analysis
- Campaign development

- Coalition building
- Direct action
The Foundation makes one-year grants for up to $25,000, to organizations with budgets under $500,000.
