The Solidarity Fund for COVID-19 Organizing is providing emergency grants of up to $10,000 to grassroots community organizing groups. Priority will go to 1) new or existing groups that are launching organizing campaigns around issues directly related to the COVID-19 crisis (these groups do not need to have 501(c)3 status or a fiscal sponsor), and 2) established grassroots community organizing groups that need funding to be able to keep organizing and need resources to build their capacity to organize virtually and/or need to replace lost revenue due to the COVID-19 crisis. These groups need to be 501(c)3 or have fiscal sponsors.
For all groups applying to the Solidarity Fund for COVID-19 Organizing, their strategy for change should rely on community organizing, and the work they are doing must be directly related to or impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
Proposals will be reviewed by a community review panel on a weekly basis. Proposals received by 9 a.m. on Monday each week with be reviewed that week. Applicants will be notified of the decision within 2 weeks of applying.
If your group has not received a grant from Bread & Roses previously, please be sure to review the characteristics of a Bread & Roses grantee and the types of community organizing we fund to see if your group is the right fit for a grant from Bread & Roses.
