Apply for a Grant

NEW GRANT APPROACH – June 2016

The Pink House Foundation is in the middle of big changes as we try to incorporate social justice philanthropy principles into our mission, investments, giving, and more!

What this means for our grant application process: PHF has committed to decreasing the number of organizations that we fund as we increase the amount of our grants and commit to more long-term funding relationships. This decision was made as part of our commitment to offering more secure funding and support for our grantees.

Though we want to leave some flexibility based on the grant applications that we receive, starting in December 2016 we are planning on funding 5-10 organizations at $20,000-$50,000 per year with multi-year grant commitments, where possible, for up to 3 years.

Our new priority is to fund organizations that address the root causes of social and environmental injustice and are based in, led by, and accountable to communities that are most impacted by the issues that you are working to address. This includes—but is not limited to—organizations that focus on:

environmental justice

destigmatizing mental health & a critical approach to disability

racial justice & indigenous rights

economic justice

gender & sexuality justice

 

CRITERIA

Your organization is eligible to apply if it meets all of the following criteria:

Is a legally registered 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) non-profit organization or has a legally registered 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor

Is based in the US

Has a total budget under $800,000

Works to address the root causes of social and environmental injustice

Is based in, led by, and accountable to communities that are most impacted by the issues that it is working to address

Engages large numbers of impacted community members in advancing solutions
