Funding Opportunities

Funding Opportunities

  • Let Us Breathe supports work around police accountability and racial justice, as well as efforts to address historic disinvestment, lack of economic opportunities, and other discriminatory forces in Black communities. The Fund prioritizes Black-led organizing groups, which is a reflection of North Star Fund's deeply-held belief that people directly affected by an issue or injustice should lead efforts for social change. Allied efforts should have a clear plan for solidarity work with Black communities. Multi-racial organizations should demonstrate how they support Black leadership within their organization and work.

Application deadline: June 1, 2015 at 5 p.m.
Grant size: $5,000 - $20,000

Because there is so much new energy and activism in Black communities on policing and racial justice issues, the Fund seeks to support new organizations and collectives, as well as groups that don't have a formal relationship with an existing nonprofit organization. Groups that need help finding a nonprofit to sponsor their grant application may contact cori schmanke parrish at cori@northstarfund.org or (212) 620-9110.
