SPF believes that general operating support grants provide key organizational capacity building, particularly for small to midsize community-based organizations tackling social, environmental and economic justice issues in the rural South. Regular Grants Cycle awards have helped organizations increase their capacity to address a variety of issues including:
- Education Reform,
- Immigration Rights
- Voter Engagement and Mobilization
- Economic Reform,
- Environmental Justice and Restoration,
- Juvenile Justice and Prison Reform,
- Healthcare Reform and Disability Rights,
- LGBTQ empowerment
- Labor rights,
- Women and Youth empowerment.
Southern Partners Fund’s grantee partners strive to transform their communities from within by building sustainable and lasting movements towards reversing inequities in the rural South. Every day people are tackling huge problems in their own backyards through efforts to alleviate the effects of poverty, lack of resources, and poorly performing education systems that persist in these areas. Citizens are engaged and individuals are empowered through the hard work and prevailing spirit of the people who make up the fabric of these grassroots community organizations. SPF is proud to partner with such extraordinary organizations through the Regular Grants Cycle Awards.
