The Next Social Justice Fund Application Deadline is July 8, 2019 (for September 12 decisions)

Social Justice Fund makes grants for grassroots activist projects in the US and around the world, giving priority to those with small budgets and little access to more mainstream funding sources. The organization  is especially interested in funding efforts to:

  • end the violence of borders and the criminalization of immigrants
  • abolish the death penalty, shut down the prison industrial complex, redefine criminal justice
  • confront institutionalized repression against racial, ethnic, gender-based, and LGBTQ communities
  • support progressive workers movements and the eradication of poverty
  • dismantle the war machine, end state sponsored terrorism, expose the dangers of nuclear power

Social Justice Fund Applicant Criteria:

  • for projects with expense budgets under $50,000:
  • from grassroots organizations with annual income of less than $500,000
  • from groups with limited access to more mainstream funding sources
  • from groups which have not received Social Justice Fund grants in at least two years
  • from groups with or without 501(c)3 status or a fiscal sponsor: the Social Justice Fund only requires a fiscal sponsor if the group receiving the grant does not have its own bank account. If you cannot receive a grant check made out to the name of your organization, you will need a fiscal sponsor.

The Social Justice Fund's priority is to support:

  • direct grassroots activism and organizing
  • groups with diverse, representative and democratic leadership structures
  • groups that have or can obtain enough economic and in-kind support to carry out their regular work, but need additional support to carry out a project or build capacity
