Fund for a Just Society

Grants are made to non-Unitarian Universalist groups in the U.S. and Canada that: Use community organizing to bring about systemic change leading to a more just society Mobilize those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from resources, power and the right to self-determination Have an active focused campaign to create systemic change.
Funding Priorities

Priority is given to active, specific campaigns to create change in the economic, social, and political structures that affect their lives. We expect the organization’s infrastructure, including leadership, membership and systems of accountability to be developed by the time of the application. We welcome projects that are less likely to receive conventional funding because of the innovative or challenging nature of the work or the economic and social status of the constituency. Please be concrete; spell out your plans. Don’t say you will “empower people,” tell us what actions you will take to create systematic change.

The next application deadline is September 17, 2012.
