Grants of $15,000 to Minnesota nonprofit organizations that use community-based approaches to create positive change and address the root causes of inequity. Funding is intended to support the operations of minority-led groups that have an organized constituency base, a clear analysis of structural causes behind the challenges their community faces, and concrete goals and strategies to build power and change systems.
Giving Project grants provide general operating support to organizations led by and for BIPOC that lead grassroots organizing work across Minnesota.
