Giving Projects accept and prioritize grant applications from groups engaging in community organizing for social justice, equity, and liberation, and that are led and directed by the communities most impacted by the issues they address. Each Giving Project is made up of a cross-class, multiracial cohort of 15-25 volunteers who have committed to building community together, learning about social justice, and working together to fund strategic, inspiring, and under-resourced community organizing. The members of every Giving Project each make a donation of an amount that is meaningful to them, develop skills as donor organizers, raise the money that funds the grant pool, screen grant proposals, participate in site visits, and make the final granting decisions. We believe the result is a more accountable, connected, and sustainable approach to social justice funding. Staff, volunteers, and members of grantee and prospective organizations are welcome to join Giving Projects! We currently offer Giving Projects in Seattle and Portland.
