Grants for Social and Environmental Justice Projects
The Ben & Jerry’s Foundation supports organizations working to bring about progressive social change by addressing the underlying conditions of societal and environmental problems. To that end, one-year grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded to nonprofit grassroots community-organizing groups in the United States to advance social and environmental justice and support sustainable and just food systems. Grants can be used to support both programming or operational costs.
The foundation will only consider proposals from grassroots constituent-led organizations with annual budgets under $500,000 that are using direct action, grassroots, and community-organizing strategies to accomplish their goals. The foundation will begin accepting applications on August 2. Pre-proposals must be received no later than October 15, 2018. Upon review, select applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
See the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation website for complete eligibility and application guidelines as well as summaries of grant projects from previous years.
