Bread & Roses makes grants to organizations that use community organizing to create sustainable social change.

We define community organizing as community-led collective action aimed at making changes in policies or practices at the institutional or systems level.

Mobilizing community members to voice community concerns by attending meetings with or writing letters, sending emails, and making phone calls to public officials

Mobilizing community members to pressure individual public officials to change their position on an issue

Hosting town hall meetings and listening projects or using other methods to gather community input on a particular issue

Training community members to disrupt harmful practices that government or corporate entities are using to maintain the existing system

Building alternatives to existing government or corporate practices that are harmful and making those alternatives available in ways that have a measurable impact on the larger community

Providing space for political education that builds the leadership and skills of members of an affected community, enabling them to analyze harmful systems and develop strategies for change

The Future Fund supports organizations that are working on emerging issues or developing new approaches to social justice activism. These groups may employ one or more effective strategies, such as: cultural work, media advocacy, and political education.

The Future Fund makes $5,000 grants. Groups who have received grants from the Future Fund in the past may reapply in the following grant cycle.
