Ben & Jerry’s Foundation Seeks Proposals for Social and Environmental Justice Projects

The Ben & Jerry’s Foundation supports organizations working to bring about progressive social change by addressing the underlying conditions of societal and environmental problems.

To that end, one-year grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded to nonprofit, grassroots community-organizing groups in the United States working to further social and environmental justice and support sustainable and just-food systems. Grants can be used to support programming and/or operations costs.

The foundation will only consider proposals from grassroots, constituent-led organizations with annual budgets under $500,000 that are using direct action, grassroots, and community-organizing strategies to accomplish their goals.

Pre-proposals will be accepted starting August 1, 2016 and must be received no later than October 14, 2016. Upon review, select applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by January 30, 2017.

See the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation website for complete eligibility and application guidelines as well as brief summaries of winning projects from previous years.
