Social Justice Fund NW is excited to announce our upcoming Grant Cycles in 2020.

As you may know, since early March SJF has been moving rapid grants through our Covid-19 Crisis Fund. With many SJF grantees having received money through that fund we are now transitioning to other, longer-term crisis grants. Meanwhile, our Economic Justice Giving Project grants will be released later in June, along with the first round of Fund 4 the Frontlines Base-building grants.

Below you will find more information about our upcoming grant opportunities along with links for more information on applying. Feel free to share with other organizations in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming who fit our criteria.

Applications will be available on Thursday, May 7 through our new grant portal. SJF is migrating to a new grants portal where we will accept all future grant applications. All previous grant information will be migrated to the new portal. If you have not already, please visit our login page to set up your organization’s account.

2020 Grant Cycles

Black Led Organizing grant. 2 year grant of $15,000/year for a total of $30,000. 

This grant will support Black led groups that are working to dismantle anti-Black racism and organizing towards Black Liberation across the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West. For this grant, we will be considering organizations led by members who are descendants of the African Diaspora (Black, African, African-American, Afro-Caribbean etc). Through this grant, we will support the dismantling of anti-Black systems as well as the building of new, imaginative systems that help achieve a world where Black communities are protected, honored, and thriving.

Forced Migration and Displacement grant. 2 year grant of $15,000/year for a total of $30,000. 

This grant will support organizations working to stop forced migration and displacement due to gentrification, colonialism, anti-immigration policies, eviction & foreclosure, environmental racism, and climate change. Marginalized people are constantly pushed out of their homes and communities through heterosexist and cis-sexist policies and practices, anti-immigrant legislation and xenophobia, racism, and gentrification. This contributes to the houselessness crisis and prevents people from accessing stable, safe housing. Organizations who apply must have leadership bodies representing the communities most impacted and centering people who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color. Through this grant, we will support organizers working to build a world where immigrants, LGBTQIA folks, people who are Black, Indigenous, and other people of color have safe housing, political power, and economic investment in their neighborhoods.

Long-term Impacts of COVID-19. 1 year grant. Dollar amount to be determined.

In addition to the above grants, SJF is working on a COVID-19 related grant that will focus on the long-term impacts of the pandemic. We will be transitioning from the COVID-19 Crisis Fund and are no longer accepting these requests. To help inform this grant, we are conducting a short grantee survey. Please respond to the survey by May 20. The new grant process will be announced in early June.
