The Diverse City Fund has opened grant applications for the spring of 2019!
The Diverse City Fund works to nurture community leaders and grassroots projects which are acting to transform DC into a more just, vibrant place to live. Through grantmaking, the Diverse City Fund identifies, supports, and connects people in communities of color who are engaged in change work.
They support the development of community-level social change by funding projects that have less access to traditional funding sources.
Funding priorities for this grant cycle are directed toward:
- Groups that might not get funded by traditional funders, e.g. groups that are small, new volunteer-led, politically radical or activist initiatives, etc.
- Coalitions / alliances
- Mobilizations for protests and resistance
- Organizing and advocacy, and
- Healing, mental health and cultural liberation work that brings people of color together and prepares people to resist.
