GrantWatch Announces New Category: SOCIAL JUSTICE

Social Justice Grants are now easier to identify and apply with the new category on GrantWatch.

For most nonprofit organizations, grants are the single most important financial resource. Getting a grant could make or break the success of many of these community serving organizations. 

With equality issues exploding in America, felt it was the right time to address this topic and create a path for nonprofits, businesses and individuals working towards social justice. 

The new social justice category includes grants specifically for: nonprofits, small businesses, municipalities, tribal organizations and community-based and faith-based organizations who focus on social justice, racial equality, economic justice, human rights and social change.  

These currently available grants in the social justice category are for providing services  for individuals, nonprofits, businesses, communities of color and other populations, cultures and religions that have been affected by racial injustice, prejudice and discrimination based upon their age, disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, national origin, race, religion, and sexual orientation.

“Our goal has always been to help nonprofit organizations secure grants but now, with this new category, we are making it easier to identify grantors with open funding applications for social justice causes,” Founder and CEO Libby Hikind said. “Right now, we have 188 grants in the category and that number keeps growing,” Hikind added. 

Libby continued, “We are ready, willing and able to accept many more social justice and other grant listings on

Working together with both the funding source (government, foundations, corporations and philanthropists) and the community grant seeking organizations in need of funding to provide services to bring about social justice, we can change the world!”


GrantWatch was first established in 2010 to level the playing field for the grant seeking community. Their mission is to provide a grant search engine with added value, with the same price point for large and small nonprofits and businesses.
