Unitarian Universalist: Fund for a Just Society
The Fund for a Just Society makes grants to nonprofit organizations addressing issues of social and economic justice. Grants support projects that meet all three below criteria:
* 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; and
* Have an active focused campaign to create systemic change.
Priority is given to active, specific campaigns to create change in the economic, social, and political structures that affect their lives.
Amount: Grants range up to $15,000 and average from $6,000 – $8,000.
Eligibility: Tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations (on-Unitarian Universalist groups) in the U.S. and Canada. Organizations must have developed infrastructure, including leadership, membership, and systems of accountability by the time of the application.
