Disability Inclusion Fund, Borealis Philanthropy – Aug 13

Posted by Borealis Philanthropy on July 20, 2021

Borealis Philanthropy is a philanthropic social justice intermediary that directs resources to grassroots leaders and social justice movements for transformative change.

To that end, the organization is accepting applications for its Disability Inclusion Fund, a five-year, $16 million fund that supports U.S.-based groups run by and for people with disabilities to lead transformational change.

The DIF prioritizes support for organizations that are disability-led with priority toward Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), queer and gender non-conforming, and women disability-led organizations; work that engages other social movements and injustices (for example climate change, immigration rights, labor rights, racial justice, etc.); work that brings other organizations, leaders, movements, and communities together to build relationships, coalitions, and opportunities for collaboration; work that celebrates, creates, and uplifts the representation of disabled people in the arts, media, education, literature, work with youth, etc.; and work that advances practices of disability inclusion and disability justice, including community organizing, advocacy, and/or policy work.

Applicants may request grants of between $40,000 and $100,000, and the fund will award up to $2 million for this two-year grant making cycle in general operating support and program/project support grants.

Learn more and apply.

Application deadline is August 13, 2021.
