Ben & Jerry's Foundation's Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Program
The Ben & Jerry's Foundation is inviting applications for its Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Program. This program offers general or project support of up to $25,000 to non-profit organizations with budgets under $500,000 throughout the United States. Broadly the program's goals are to further social and environmental justice, and support sustainable and just food systems. However it also focuses on the types of activities and strategies an organization uses for creating social change rather than on the specific issues the organization is addressing. The Foundation will only consider proposals from grassroots, constitutent-led organizations that are using community-organizing and base-building strategies to accomplish their goals.
