Minority and LGBTI Youth Activism Supported
The Third Wave Fund supports youth-led gender justice activism to advance the political power, well-being, and self-determination of communities of color and low-income communities in the United States. Third Wave’s Mobilize Power Fund provides grants for urgent organizing and activism led by young women of color, low-income youth, or queer, trans, and intersex youth of color around the country who are taking on this country’s most challenging issues. Grants range up to $5,000 for individual organizations and up to $15,000 for coalitions and partnerships. Grassroots organizations, groups, and collectives are encouraged to apply. Priority is given to organizations with budgets under $500,000 that are based in areas with limited access to philanthropic resources. Proposals are accepted all year and reviewed monthly.
