We prefer to make general support grants and do not limit the number of renewal grants. We believe this helps organizations increase and sustain their effectiveness.
We seek out organizations led by people of color and/or working in low income communities. We support efforts to develop the leadership skills of, and foster the participation by, low income people and people of color.
We encourage requests that address multiple priorities, as well as those that bring together organizations and activists from diverse movements. With first time grants, we try to bring diverse voices and approaches, and young people into the movements for social change.
We make grants throughout the United States in both rural and urban communities. Grants under the New York City funding priority are made for citywide activities and to organizations working in any of NYC’s five boroughs.
