Collective Future Fund: Collective Power for Survivor-Led Feminist Futures FundDeadline: January 22, 2021
The Collective Future Fund supports donors, social justice movements, and survivors to shape a collective future free from sexual harassment and violence, and funds efforts that are led by women of color who are survivors of gender-based violence. The goal of the Collective Power for Survivor-led Feminist Futures Fund (the Fund) is to provide general operating support to organizations to actualize broader visions of building power, laying out the path needed to cultivate communities rooted in care and mutuality, build collaborative ecosystems, and have the resources to sustain the fight towards liberation. The Fund prioritizes organizations whose core mission, goals, and activities address ending gender-based violence, and prioritize ending sexual violence. The Fund will support the following strategies to end gender-based violence:
- Power Building: Supporting the healing and leadership of Black and Indigenous women, and women of color (BIPOC women), queer and trans people of color (QTPOC), and gender non-conforming and non-binary survivors of color in the emerging safety movement to end gender-based violence. The Fund will prioritize organizations centering survivors of sexual violence to push for systemic change through organizing, advocacy, and policy change.
- Solidarity: Building solidarity among BIPOC communities, across QTPOC communities and movements, im/migrants, and people with disabilities, to increase racial and gender justice. The Fund will support survivor-led organizations to share strategies, cultivate partnerships, and support innovations that advance efforts to end gender-based violence.
- Voice: Growing narrative and cultural power to generate and drive narratives that shift social norms about gender-based violence using tools such as communications, storytelling, and the arts.
Amount: Grants will be made in the range of $250,000–$350,000 per year, for two years.
Eligibility: Non-profit organizations that specifically support and are led by Black, Indigenous, women, girls, and femmes of color; trans and gender non-conforming people of color; im/migrants and refugees; and women of color with disabilities.
Note: Entities that are not 501(c)3 organizations may apply, but must meet additional requirements, and will receive a Project Support grant instead of General Operating support.
