Pink House Foundation Now Accepting Proposals for 2017 Grant Cycle


The Pink House Foundation adopted a new mission together with long-term grantmaking priorities in 2016. Our objective moving forward is to support transformative social movements that are working to advance social justice and sustainability for all communities. We prioritize funding for organizations that endeavor to address the root causes of social and environmental injustice and are based in, led by, and accountable to communities that are most impacted by these issues. See below for more detailed eligibility information.

PHF will begin accepting proposals from eligible organizations immediately, and the application deadline has been extended to May 2, 2017.

Please note that the foundation will only be able to provide support for a very limited number of new organizations in this cycle. The foundation began making multi-year grants in 2016 in response to the call for longer-term funding support. As a result, the foundation has more limited space for new grants and anticipates making only five new grants in 2017. If awarded, grants typically come in the form of general support in the $20,000-$50,000 range. Final decisions will be announced by late December 2017.
