We are happy to announce that Groundswell dispersed grants worth $250,000 in the summer of 2020.

Many thanks, as always, to our generous and dedicated donors!

Please join us in celebrating the 27 groups funded this year, with our deepest admiration and respect for everyone working towards a just and sustainable future.

For the first time, we were able to offer one-time grants of $10,000 to $70,000 for larger scale projects led by Indigenous and Black communities. We also offered more funding than ever before through our annual grants of up to $4000. Explore the work of this year's Growing Change and Annual Grant recipient groups and find out how to continue supporting their crucial work.

Please consider making a donation to help us fund as many applications as possible in 2021!

Groundswell applications for 2021 funding now open! Deadline is March 14, 2021. See if your organization fits the criteria and apply for an annual grant.

A funding organization based in Toronto, Ontario, Groundswell raises money for organizations and projects dedicated to social justice.

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.
