SJF is excited to announce our slate of funding opportunities for 2023! We want to thank our community of grantees, donor organizers, and supporters for informing our focus areas. Based on community feedback, our strategic plan, and an evaluation of the current political moment, our upcoming funding opportunities will center grassroots reproductive justice efforts, Native-led organizing, environmental justice, and our year-round Rapid Response & Seed Grants. Additionally, we will also be supporting generational wealth building strategies for communities in and around the City of Seattle.
Read on for a description of how our upcoming grants will roll out, including Rapid Response & Seed Grants opening April 3 and the 2023 Reproductive Justice Grant opening this Spring. Much appreciation to everyone in the SJF community who continues to donate and engage with our work — you are the reason we can do what we do!
