The Hill-Snowdon Foundation, General Service Foundation, Jesse Smith Noyes Foundation, the Whitman Institute and other partners have announced the 2nd round of the Defending the Dream Fund. The Defending the Dream Fund was launched in April 2017 to help fund grassroots community organizing groups address a variety of new and urgent threats related to Trump era policies or practices at the federal, state or local level. These threats continue to evolve and emerge and the second round of the Defending the Dream Fund seeks to support:
- Community Organizing & Power Building
- Multiple Issues, Immediate, Mid and Long-term & Intersectional Work
- State and Local level organizing
Priority will be given to grassroots community based organizations with budgets under $1 million; as well as work that is focused on under-resourced regions of the country (e.g. the South, Mid-West, etc.).
