Grants of $50,000 to USA, Canada, and International organizations serving minorities to provide relief to frontline workers and survivors of violence during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and other unfolding crises. Applicants must submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a full proposal.

The purpose of the Survivor Safety and Securing Democratic Futures grants is to channel resources to Black-, Indigenous-, women-of-color-, queer-, trans-, nonbinary and gender non-conforming people-of-color-led organizations that are advancing safety and support through direct relief and organizing support to frontline workers and survivors of gender-based and state violence during the multiple crises that have been unfolding in 2020. 

Providing this funding will help organizations pivot and be nimble during these multiple crises, ensure safety and protections for survivors and impacted workers, encourage robust democratic participation amidst rising authoritarianism, and coordinate transnationally in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Priorities:

  • Supports, advocacy, and organizing to address interpersonal violence (including intimate partner violence) as a result of the public health crisis that is forcing people to stay in their homes, unable to flee abuse and violence, away from support networks such as friends and family, shelters, unable to access healthcare, mental health services, and anti-violence support groups and services;
  • Counseling, care, safety planning, and other support to survivors of family and institutional violence during isolation, either virtually or otherwise;
  • Support existing funds that help survivors of violence to mitigate the financial distress from lost income;
  • Community-based or mutual aid groups organizing to provide emergency food, medical supplies or support for care to survivors of violence — specifically Black women, Indigenous women, women of color, queer, trans, nonbinary and gender non-conforming people of color, people of color with disabilities, and immigrants — who are at high risk for COVID-19, isolated from community supports that were more accessible previous to the pandemic, unemployed, and/or otherwise directly affected by the multiple adverse impacts of the pandemic, economic downturn, and uprisings for racial justice; 
  • Support for youth survivors to create supportive networks, access health care, find counseling and other support; 
  • Support for childcare for survivors and frontline workers;
  • Ensure and encourage robust democratic participation from constituencies targeted and under attack from rising authoritarianism.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The Survivor Safety and Securing Democratic Futures grants are in the amount of $50,000.

Term of Contract:

The Survivor Safety and Securing Democratic Futures grants are for one year, from December 2020 to December 2021.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

- Organizations led by and serving women of color — specifically, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Arab, Asian, and Pacific Islander; queer, transgender, and gender-nonconforming people of color, im/migrants and refugees, women of color with disabilities. Being “led by” means that the organization has survivors and/or BIPOC women/girls/femmes and QTPOC, im/migrants and refugees, and/or people of color and/or people with disabilities in key leadership and management positions, put an intersectional analysis into practice, and are engaged as key strategy, advocacy, and policy experts within the organization.
- Organizations whose core mission, goals, and activities address ending gender-based violence and bring an orientation and analysis of racial and gender justice (intersectional analysis and strategy development), and to global feminisms, that center survivors and pushes for structural change, collective healing and addresses the root causes of violence.
- Status as a 501(c)3 under US tax law (for US-based organizations) or having a 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor is the most expedient way to receive a grant, but is not required. Non-US based organizations can apply with a US-based 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor. Organizations (whether in the US or outside the US) that have neither 501(c)3 status nor a fiscal sponsor with 501(c)3 status can apply, but must meet some additional requirements if invited to submit a full proposal, and will be eligible for a based grant instead of general operating support.

Your organization must fit the grant criteria guidelines, and is a nonprofit organization with 501(c)3 status or a community group, collective, or organization fiscally sponsored by a nonprofit organization that has 501(c)3 status. Fiscally sponsored groups will be required to provide a letter or memorandum of understanding from the fiscal sponsor confirming the relationship. The Fund does not make grants to individuals, public or private schools, and/ or media organizations.

Without a fiscal sponsor, your organization can still apply, but if invited to submit a full proposal your organization will need to meet additional requirements including providing recent financials, a project budget and, if funded, more reporting at the end of the grant cycle. For the full list of additional materials required for projects without a fiscal sponsor, please see the full proposal if invited to submit a full proposal.

Pre-Application Information:

You can submit your organizational profile, Step 1 of the application process, from October 9, 2020 to November 9, 2020 by 10 pm EST. If invited to complete a full proposal in Step 2 of the application process, submissions will be accepted in two cycles:

This is a two-step application process:
