Funding Information

The Community Voices Fund will award one year grants in three different ranges, depending on the scope and needs of the work. These categories are meant to provide helpful guidance, but they will remain flexible as they review applications:

The Star level ($10,000- $40,000) is typically geared toward new or smaller-scale projects, community engagement, or experimentation.
The Constellation level ($40,000- $75,000) generally seeks to support larger-scale projects or collaborations that result in innovative content creation and stronger networks.
The Galaxy level ($75,000-$125,000) will support established programs and projects to expand, evolve or deepen their work, particularly those that are focused on movement building.
