Resist invites applications for social change, justice grants

Boston-based Resist works to redistribute resources back to frontline communities at the forefront of social change while amplifying their efforts to build a better world.

To that end, the organization invites applications from grassroots organizations led by those most impacted by intersecting systems of oppression and that are working to advance justice and liberation.

Two types of grants will be awarded in this round:

  • General Support: Grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded in support of groups that are building movements for justice and liberation and resisting systemic oppression through grassroots/cultural organizing, artmaking, and resilience building.
  • Accessibility: Grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded for work that specifically enables a group’s work to be more accessible to community members with specific accessibility needs.

Applicants must have an organizational budget under $150,000 per year, be based in the United States, and be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) according to the Internal Revenue Code, a federally recognized Native American tribal government or agency, or be sponsored by a previously listed entity.
