Borealis Philanthropy invites applications for the Disability Inclusion Fund

The Borealis Philanthropy Disability Inclusion Fund (DIF) supports U.S.-based groups led by people with disabilities, disabled people of color, disabled queer and trans folks, building a more liberatory world free from ableism.

The fund invites applications from organizations working to strengthen disability inclusion, rights, and justice. DIF grants will support organizations whose work is rooted in intersectional cross-movements, is collaborative, and aims to build a more vibrant, just, and joyful world for people with disabilities—from arts and culture, to policy and advocacy. Examples of this work include community organizing, mutual aid, advocacy, and/or policy work. Grants of $75,000 per year for two years will be awarded.

Organizations that meet the following criteria will be prioritized: organizations that are disability-led with priority toward Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC), queer and gender non-conforming, and women disability-led organizations; work that engages other social movements and injustices for example the movement for Black lives, climate change, immigration rights, labor rights, racial justice, queer and trans liberation, etc.; work that brings other organizations, leaders, movements, and communities together to build power through relationships, coalitions, and opportunities for collaboration; work that drives narrative change in ways that dismantle ableism and attitudinal barriers in our policy, society, and culture; strategies that celebrate, create, and elevate uplifting the authentic representation of disabled people in the arts, media, literature, and other creative works; and work that moves practices of disability inclusion and disability justice forward.

To be eligible, applicant organizations must have an annual budget with committed revenue is less than $1 million, and must be U.S-based or U.S. territory-based 501(c)(3) or be fiscally sponsored.
