Exciting News for 2023

We've made funding more accessible! In the past, we required Investigate research projects to match funds, but in 2023, both Convene and Investigate grants will not require applicants to match their funding request. As part of our commitment to trust-based philanthropy and equitable grant-making, we hope to address and remove barriers to accessing grants.

Considering Applying?

We offer two different grant types to reflect the different stages of a participatory action research process:
