What we will fund

We understand reproductive justice as, “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities,” as shared by Sister Song.

The 2023 Reproductive Justice Grant cycle will support grassroots, community organizing efforts that advance the movement for reproductive justice in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and/or Wyoming. These grants will support groups whose work increases access to self-determination, bodily autonomy, and reproductive/sexual health. 

We will prioritize funding organizations with Black, Indigenous, and/or POC leadership, and/or who conduct most of their work in reservation communities, and/or rural, small town communities. 

Some examples of organizing work that is eligible for this grant include: 

  • Resource mobilization for reproductive justice organizing
  • Organizing efforts supporting queer/trans maternal/parental health, child-bearing/child-rearing  
  • Establishing queer and nonbinary community spaces
  • Leadership development programs for sexual and reproductive health and rights
  • Facilitating healing and wellness
  • Developing community processes, practices or civic engagement concerning abortion, contraception, family planning, and HIV care

Due to applicant feedback and organizational capacity, this grant cycle will not include the site visit process. In the spirit of our organizational values coupled with our upcoming strategic plan, we will revisit our grant application processes, sharing new information when it becomes available.
