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 grassroots community-organizing groups in the United States working to advance social and environmental justice and sustainable and just-food systems. Grants can be used for both programming and operational 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 must be received no later than April 18, 2018. Upon review, select applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
See the Ben & Jerry's Foundation website for complete eligibility and application guidelines as well as summaries of winning grant projects from previous years.
