This spring, our 10 grantmakers read through more than 100 applications to pick this cycle's grantees.
In a typical cycle, we grant out roughly $200,000 to 17-20 organizations across the state. This spring, thanks to our newly launched Donor-in-Movement Fund program, which moves 50% of an annual investment to our grantmaking program, we were able to fund 31 organizations with roughly $450,000—more than double what we typically grant out!
These 31 fantastic organizations are working towards prison abolition, community restoration after fires in Southern Oregon, providing education and job training, gun safety, preserving Indigenous culture, continuing Pride celebrations in rural cities, providing resources for trans and gender diverse community members, and so much more.
More than 70% of our Spring grantees are BIPOC-led. Another 34% are run by LGBTQSIA+. And nearly 70% are from outside the Portland Metro area.
Join us in celebrating and learning more about all of them and the incredible work they do in service to the movement for justice.
