PDF is more than a grantmaker: our model of philanthropy involves direct funding, advocacy where appropriate, and partnerships built around mutual respect, sharing of resources, and transparency of planning and decision-making. We endeavor to be a key “go-to” foundation on issues of peace, human rights, social justice and environmental protection. We work to counter-balance dominant power structures by moving resources and sharing decision-making with activist groups and communities. Find out more on our About The Foundation page.

On Giving Tuesday we were able to add another $1,533 to our Community Organizing Grants docket, bringing our total to $75,533. Thank you to everyone who participated!

We will be opening our Request for Proposals for the Community Organizing Grants docket on January 1, 2015, due February 2, 2015. Please check our website at that time for the 2015 grants application.
