Peace Development Fund Invites Applications for Grassroots Social Justice Efforts


The Peace Development Fund (PDF) was founded in 1981 in the belief that lasting change will come only when a large amount of people are well informed and empowered to make change.

To that end, the organization is inviting applications for its Community Organizing Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to grassroots organizations working for social justice. PDF funds organizations directly engaged in community organizing activities, include organizing to shift power, to build a movement, to dismantle oppression, and/or create new structures. Funding priorities include: new or emerging organizations; efforts that have difficulty securing funds from other sources; community organizations working on climate change issues at the local policy level; groups that have a genesis in Occupy, MeToo, or the Movement for Black Lives; collaborative peace initiatives led by women; or issues that are not yet recognized by progressive funders. PDF tries to fund organizations with the potential to have a significant impact in their geographic and social justice focus area, or that are working on issues not yet recognized by progressive funders.

To be eligible, applicants must have a budget no larger than $250,000 and be located in the United States, Haiti, or Mexico.

See the Peace Development Fund website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
