Resist Funds Groups that:
Resist. Groups that organize, base build, engage in direct action, and cultural organizing. Groups organize within communities for structural social and economic change. Groups develop tools for consciousness-raising, including popular education and radical pedagogy development.
Re-imagine. Groups that actively build new systems that provide alternatives to the ones they are fighting now. These groups live into transformative justice by creating community-based alternatives to dehumanizing or inaccessible institutions and systems. This work might look like: alternatives to policing, urban gardens, cooperative childcare, etc..
Build Resilience. Groups that are creating through arts and cultural work and all forms of creative resilience building. Groups that are healing through sacred resistance, sustainability, ritual, bodywork, and other embodied healing for communities engaged in the work of liberation.
Type of Grant
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.
Multi-year Grants: Open only to current grantees who meet the above requirements and have been fully funded twice (for General Support and Accessibility) in the past five years. Multi-year funding consists of three years of full funding ($4000), starting with the year the multi-year application is submitted.
