We are now accepting applications and donations for the 2022 granting cycle!

APPLY!! This year, our second round of Growing Change funding is available in one-time grants of $10,000 to $100,000 for brave, audacious, courageous projects led by Indigenous and Black communities.

We are interested in initiatives that build community infrastructure, increase capacity, and are multi-generational. We are looking for projects that will grow and survive into the future with support, focusing on building long-term community capacity. Find out if your project fits the criteria to apply for a one-time Growing Change grant!

Applications are due by Sunday, February 20, 2022 and funds go out in Spring 2022. Please note: This year, we are not distributing our smaller, annual grants. Check back in Fall 2022 for details about our next annual granting cycle!

DONATE!! Please join us in reaching our $400,000 fundraising goal! Last year, grants totalling $300,000 were dispersed to 40 groups. This year, our larger Growing Change grants (up to $100,000) will provide more substantial funding to facilitate long-term sustainable impact by grassroots movements. Please consider making a donation to help us fund as many applications as possible in 2022!

Many groups face serious constraints when trying to fund political work that directly confronts power imbalances and systemic injustice. Our goal is to build a growing network of people who are willing to donate money to fund this important work. Groundswell is volunteer-run and is not a charity.

Learn about our goals and philosophy.

Please make a donation to Groundswell! Your money has the potential to fund both existing and new organizations and projects, build infrastructure for long-term organizing, and create new ways to discuss and disseminate political ideas. Let's harness our collective resources to support social change.
