Meet our 24 Fall General Fund Grantees!

We’re excited to announce that our Grantmaking Committee has selected 24 organizations working towards justice to receive General Fund grants this fall!

After reading, scoring, and discussing more than 100 applications this fall, our Grantmaking Committee has awarded $360,000 (almost 20% of which came directly from our Donor-in-Movement Funds!) to 24 amazing organizations addressing a range of issues, including advocating for disadvantaged Latinx vineyard workers, cultivating BIPOC leaders within the sex worker community to advance sex worker rights and criminal justice reform, creating lasting representation and equity for indigenous/Native people within arts and media, and so much more!

As always, our commitment to support emerging and grassroots groups are led by those most impacted by injustice. 88% of our grantee groups are led by Black, Indigenous, and people of color and nearly two-thirds serve communities outside the Portland Metro area.

Read more below about the 24 incredible organizations that are receiving Seeding Justice grants this winter as they work to bring our collective vision of a world of imagination, joy, and abundance into being.
