Areas of Interest
General Support Grants: General Support Grants are available for up to $4,000 to support groups who are building movements for justice and liberation and resisting systemic oppression through grassroots/cultural organizing, art-making and resilience building. General support grants are awarded by a panel of previously funded Resist grantees. Groups are funded based on the strength of their overall application. Awards can be used to best meet your group’s needs. Groups can only be funded once per 12-month period. There is no limit to the number of times a grantee can receive funds. If a group has been fully funded twice in the past five years, they may apply for a multi-year grant.
Accessibility Grants: Resist is committed to supporting projects that enable all people to participate in the movement for justice and liberation. Resist will fund the additional costs of making projects or events more accessible to community members with specific accessibility needs. Accessibility grants are awarded up to $4,000.
Rapid Response Grants: Resist offers $1,000 Rapid Response grants to better meet the needs of frontline groups and organizations. This grant is decided on by Resist staff and generally has a one week turn around.
Successful grant applicants are small-budget groups that struggle toward a broad vision of social justice, while continuing to oppose political and institutional oppression.
