Advancing Social Justice, Impact Fund – Apr 12

Posted by Impact Fund on March 15, 2022

The Impact Fund provides grants to advance social justice in the United States.

To that end, grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded to nonprofit legal service providers, private attorneys, and/or small law firms working to advance social justice in civil and human rights, anti-poverty, and environmental justice cases that impact a marginalized group. Grants typically range between $10,000 and $50,000 and are usually awarded for a particular case, but occasionally the fund will support a series of cases connected by a common strategy. Most grants are for class actions, but multi-plaintiff and environmental justice cases that aim to affect a larger system significantly are encouraged.

Impact Fund grants may be used for out-of-pocket litigation expenses such as expert fees and discovery costs but may not be used for attorney’s fees, staff, or other overhead.

Due to the pandemic, the fund will fast-track urgent COVID-19-related requests submitted in the month following the LOI deadline.

Letters of interest must be received no later than April 12, 2022, and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by May 10, 2022.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Impact Fund website.

Deadline to apply: April 12, 2022
