The Chicago Community Trust - Asian Giving Circle
Grants of up to $8,000 to Illinois nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for projects that advance social justice for marginalized communities. Funding priorities include healing, community organizing, and civic engagement in Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Eligible projects are those that benefit residents in the Chicago metropolitan area.
The following are examples of projects that strongly fit this year’s giving focus:
Organizations that have not typically engaged in community organizing, civic engagement, and/or healing are encouraged to think creatively to consider how these strategies can further advance their missions.
AGC prioritizes initiatives that center the leadership and vision of impacted communities, including undocumented immigrants, people of color, low-income families, refugees, LGBTQ individuals, low-wage workers, Muslims, those who lack health care access, people with disabilities/disabled people, adoptees, youth, elders, women, and many more.
