Contributions to the Emergent Fund provide urgently needed resources for movements at the front lines of resistance. In 2017, our activist-led Advisory Council has approved over $1 million in rapid-response grants. We are honored to partner with the following organizations and provide general support grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. 

In this time of unprecedented action and engagement by ordinary Americans, the Emergent Fund also wants to contribute to inspiring but brand-new and unproven ideas getting off the ground. We will soon begin a series of smaller "seed grants" for this purpose, ranging from $3,000 to $5,000.

For more information on our grantees, please write to us at: Donors will receive regular email updates.
