Community Organizing Grant Applications Open

November 15, 2023 All day

The Community Organizing Grants program contains PDF’s annual grantmaking docket which consists of four grant programs: the Seeding the Movement Fund, Pioneer Valley Community Advised FundThe Braiding New Worlds Fund and the De Colores Rapid Response Fund. Any organization that fits PDF’s guidelines is eligible to apply for a grant. PDF currently 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 and interview process, PDF selects those organizations that will have a significant impact in their geographic and social justice focus area, or are working on issues that are not yet recognized by progressive funders.
