Foundation offers small grants to 'promote civil discourse'

GriffinHarte Foundation invites applications for projects promoting civil discourse.

With a mission to provide people with the support they need to learn, teach, and explore how civility works in today’s complex world, the GriffinHarte Foundation aims to support conversations, research, and teaching that help us live and work together with civility.

Grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded to support the following types of projects:

Conversations, research, and scholarship that are: Grounded in questions and practices of civility and feminism; informed by a desire to define, explore, and advocate for social, political, and economic justice in our professional and personal lives; and centered in an explicit recognition of the ways our identities influence our lives and communication—our gender and sex, race and ethnicity, age and physical abilities, and education and economic standing.

Educational practices and research that are: Focused on how we teach as well as what we teach, grounded in a commitment to alternative pedagogies and educational practices, informed by an explicit recognition of the ways identities, genders and sex, feminisms, civility, and civic engagement relate to social, political and economic justice.

Educational opportunities as they explore identity, gender, feminism, civility, civic engagement, and social, political, and economic justice.
