Funding Exchange Announces 2003 Application Guidelines
Deadline: March 1, 2003
The New York City-based Funding Exchange (FEX) is a network of community funds across the United States that administer their own independent grantmaking programs. The FEX network includes activists and donors dedicated to building a base of support for progressive social change.
Beginning February 1, the Funding Exchange national office will accept applications for its three OSD grant programs: the OUT Fund for Lesbian and Gay Liberation, an activist- advised fund that supports radical organizing projects designed to build community among lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transsexuals, and transgender and inter-sex people; the Saguaro Fund, an activist-advised fund that supports organizing projects primarily serving and led by communities of color; and the Grantmaking Docket, a donor-advised program that supports community-based organizing around a variety of issues. OSD programs prioritize community-based organizing around a variety of issues, including but not limited to economic equity; environmental justice; social justice; media and cultural activism; movement building; and international solidarity with progressive movements abroad. Candidates for funding should meet the following criteria: be working for social change to eliminate oppression; feature organizing as a primary strategy; be able to demonstrate constituency involvement and leadership; and have limited access to corporate or mainstream sources of funding.
Visit the Funding Exchange Web site to download complete guidelines and for information on other grant programs.
