New Rapid Response and Seed Grants Address Critical, Urgent Needs

Social Justice Fund NW is proud to announce the launch of two new funding opportunities for social justice organizations doing critical organizing work in the greater Northwest.  Applications are now available for our NEW Rapid Response & Seed Grants.

  • The Rapid Response Grant will provide fast, small grants of up to $2,000 to help local communities respond and act quickly to the changing political climate with actions and/or strategies that could not have been anticipated.  Click Here to Apply Now
  • The Seed Grant will provide small grants of up to $2,000 for groups less than 3 years old that are developing their community organizing work but do not yet meet the qualifications for SJF’s standard grants.  Click Here to Apply Now

Both grant cycles were designed by SJF in order to provide more strategic and responsive support to a diversity of community organizing needs in our current political climate, as well as expand our capacity to support critical work that often can’t be funded through our standard Giving Project model.
