Grants of $10,000, $15,000, or $20,000 to New York nonprofits for social justice activism through community organizing and campaigns in New York City and Hudson Valley. Funding is intended to build leadership and grassroots activism in marginalized communities. Strong preference will be given to organizations that have less access to foundation funders, capacity building, or training opportunities; or that lack "back office" administrative and/or fundraising support from a host organization or fiscal sponsor.
