Deadline approaches for Racial & Economic Justice Fund

Bread & Roses Community Fund has always centered racial and economic justice — the Black Panther Party and the Welfare Rights Organization were among the first grantees made by our predecessor organization, the People's Fund, in 1970. That first round of grants also went to groups opposing the war in Vietnam and fighting for healthcare, gender justice, police accountability, and housing rights.

We believe that the people in the best position to create real change are those who are most affected by injustice and oppression. That's why we move money to groups that are led by people of color, poor and working class people, women, trans and non-binary people, LGBQIA+ people, and people with disabilities. And, that's why all of the decisions about where the grant money goes are made by members of the community.

Bread and Roses is now accepting applications the 2022 Racial & Economic Justice Fund.

The Racial & Economic Justice Fund is a core fund at Bread & Roses that makes $10,000 grants to grassroots groups in the Philadelphia region that use community organizing to promote racial and economic justice at the local, state, national, or international levels.

February 1 is the deadline to apply for a grant from the Racial & Economic Justice Fund.
