  • Organizing to Shift Power:
    • Groups that are creating a power base that can hold leaders accountable to the people who are affected by their decisions.
    • Groups that let their membership or constituents take the lead in collective action-planning and decision-making.
    • Groups whose leadership comes directly from the people who are most affected by the issues you are organizing around.
  • Working to Build a Movement:
    • Groups that organize in the local community, but make connections between local issues and a broader need for systemic change.
    • Groups that provide a space for members to develop their political analyses at the same time as taking action for change.
    • Groups that break down barriers within the progressive movement, by building strategic alliances between groups of different cultural or class backgrounds or different issue areas.
    • Groups that explore the root causes of injustice and have a long-term vision for the kind of social change they are working for.
  • Dismantling Oppression:
    • Groups and projects that are proactively engaged in a process of dismantling oppression, confronting privilege and challenging institutional structures that perpetuate oppression (both internal and external to the organization).
    • Groups that are proactively making connections between the different forms of oppression (racism, heterosexism, sexism, ageism, classism, ableism, etc.), and its connections with injustice.
  • Creating New Structures:
    • Groups that have alternative organizational structures that allow power to flow “from the bottom up.”
    • Efforts to create new, community-based alternative systems and structures (economic, political, cultural, religious, etc.) that are liberating, democratic, and environmentally sustainable and which promote healthy, sustainable communities.
  • Other Funding Priorities:
    • New or emerging organizations; efforts that have difficulty securing funds from other sources; community organizations working on climate change issues at the local policy level; groups that have a genesis in Occupy, MeToo or Movement for Black Lives; collaborative peace initiatives led by women; or issues that are not yet recognized by progressive funders

Eligibility Criteria

  • Programs with a primary geographic focus within the United States, U.S. Territories, Mexico and Haiti.
  • If an organization is U.S.-based but works mostly outside of these areas, it should consider filling out an LOI for a Donor Advised Fund grant, which are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Interested applicants must apply online via given website.
