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.Learn more…

Grassroots Funding Week

This April, PDF’s Community Organizing Grant cycle will end with a week of PDF-powered online crowdfunding, “Grassroots Funding Week.” PDF will use our website and our own online presence to share the stories and missions of prospective grantees across our broad community of partners and supporters.Over the course of one week, April 23 to 30, we will chose an area of social justice work to highlight each day, like Immigrant Rights; Environmental Justice; Housing, Homelessness and Economic Justice; Youth Leadership; Criminal Justice; Women Peacemakers; LGBTQ and Indigenous Rights.

To participate in Grassroots Funding Week, come back to our website beginning Monday, April 23, read about the amazing work community groups are doing, and click on the organizations you want to support.

Become a donor and direct funder yourself, and together we build the movement.

Stay up-to-date and get involved
