Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Grant
October 15, 2014
Ben & Jerry’s Foundation:
The Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Program offers general or project support to non-profit organizations throughout the United States and accounts for about 75% of our total giving.
We make one-year grants for up to $20,000, to organizations with budgets under $500,000. Only organizations with 501(c)3 status, or who have a fiscal agent with this status are eligible to apply.
While our broad goals are to further social and environmental justice and support sustainable and just food systems, we focus on the types of activities and strategies an organization uses for creating social change rather than on the specific issues the organization is addressing.
We will only consider proposals from grassroots, constituent-led organizations that are using community-organizing and base-building strategies to accomplish their goals.
