Grants of $15,000 to Minnesota nonprofit organizations that use community-based approaches to create positive change and address the root causes of injustice. 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. In 2020, Headwaters will offer Giving Project grants to support organizations that are led by and for Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color (BIPOC).
Participants of the 2020 Giving Project will raise all grant funds. The cross-class, multiracial cohort will spend six months raising money from their friends, families, and communities. They will also lead the Giving Project grantmaking process.
While the work will differ, all Giving Project grantees will share the following characteristics:
