The Community Organizing Grants program contains PDF’s annual grantmaking docket and the De Colores Rapid Response Fund. Any organization that fits PDF’s guidelines is eligible to apply for a grant. Currently PDF only funds organizations in the United States, Haiti and Mexico through the Community Organizing Grants docket.
Each year PDF receives hundreds of proposals from grassroots community organizations seeking funding. Through a careful review process, PDF selects those organizations that will have a significant impact in their geographic and social justice focus area, or on issues that are not yet recognized by progressive funders.
PDF’s next Community Organizing Grant cycle opens January 1, 2018 with proposals due February 1st. Decisions will be made by June 30th.
