Funding Sectors

  • Social Justice: Provides grants and legal support to assist in human and civil rights cases.
  • Environmental Justice: Provides grants to support impact litigation for environmental justice, with a focus on marginalized communities.
  • Economic Justice: Provides financial and other forms of support to cases fighting for economic justice.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Impact Fund makes grants to lawyers, law firms, and nonprofit organizations involved in impact litigation.
  • Most of their grants are for one particular case, but occasionally they fund a series of cases bound by a common strategy. They fund civil rights, human rights, anti-poverty, and environmental justice cases that will affect a marginalized group.
  • Most of their grants are for class actions, but they also fund multi-plaintiff and environmental justice cases that aim to significantly affect a larger system. Impact Fund grants may be used for out-of-pocket litigation expenses such as expert fees and discovery costs, but not for attorney’s fees, staff, or other overhead.
