Thank you for your interest! We do not currently have any open applications for Giving Project or Grant Panel grants. Please check back soon.


Rapid Response & Seed Grants and other rolling grants

Rapid Response Grants One time grant of $3000

Deadline: Rolling, submit by the 30/31st of the month

Rapid Response Grants are small project specific grants of $3,000 to help grassroots organizations respond quickly to the changing political climate with actions and/or strategies that could not have been anticipated. To apply for a Rapid Response Grant, please make an account and submit your application through our Foundant Grant Portal.

Seed Grants One time grant of $5000

Deadline: Rolling, submit by the 30/31st of the month

Seed Grants are small general operating grants of $5,000 to support new and emerging groups that are developing their community organizing work but might not yet meet all the qualifications for SJF’s Giving Project grants. To apply for a Seed Grant, please make an account and submit your application through our Foundant Grant Portal.


These deadlines have passed, but RFPs are here for reference

The 2022 Queer Justice Momentum Giving Project Grant 2 year grant of $20,000/year, $40,000 total

Deadline: Wednesday, July 3 by 11:59PM PT

This grant will support groups led by LGBTQIA+ individuals, non-binary folks, and fem(me)s who are organizing against heterosexism, transmisogynoir, homophobia, cissexism, and working to build the liberation of groups who have been marginalized because of their sexual and/or gender identity in meaningful ways across Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming. We will prioritize funding organizations with Black, Indigenous, and/or POC leadership, and/or who conduct most of their work in rural, small town, and/or reservation communities.

The 2022 Rural Community Organizing Grant One time grant of $15,000

Deadline: Monday, June 20 by 10:59PM MT / 11:59PM PT

This grant cycle will support community organizing that builds grassroots power in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming with priority given to organizations in rural (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau –all population, housing, and territory not included within an urbanized area or urban cluster), small town, and reservation communities. We will also prioritize organizations with budgets under $500,000 and organizations with leadership (at least 51%) from Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities.

The 2022 Base Building grant 5 year grant of $50,000/year for a total of $250,000

Deadline: Friday, February 18, 2022 at 3pm PT

This grant will support base building strategies across our region and is open to organizations that have previously received an SJF Giving Project grant. We understand base building as a community organizing tactic that grows the breadth and depth of people who share a vision for social justice and who develop and execute the organizing strategies to make that vision a reality. With strong base building organizations as part of our ecosystem, our movements have more leadership and more power to change policies, transform culture, and build new models and institutions — and to defend and maintain those victories over time.
