January 11, 2019

Groundswell Community Justice Trust FundGroundswell is now accepting grant applications for 2019 through their Community Justice Trust Fund!

For projects and organizations with a vision of transforming society by fighting systemic injustices.

For vital work that is not government-funded and not charity.

Apply to the Community Justice Trust Fund

Deadline: February 17, 2019

Groundswell is excited to review applications for $500-$4000 that meet the following criteria:

  • Work that is led by the communities the group are organizing; specifically, people most directly affected by oppression
  • Work of organizations led by Black and/or Indigenous organizers, to whom we are committed to giving a minimum 50% of funding
  • Work that confronts the root causes of oppression, rather than just finding temporary solutions
  • Work that actively confronts power imbalances and seeks to build community power
  • Work that increases organizational infrastructure, allowing groups to do their work on a long-term basis
  • Work that cannot get adequate funding from other sources
  • Work taking place within Ontario, though, given our ongoing commitment to decolonize our work, relying on colonial borders requires us to be more flexible.
