Social Justice Fund Grants Application Deadline has passed

The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF) is not accepting grant applications for the Social Justice Fund for Alaska.

This opportunity will accept applications from January 13th, 2021, until 5:00 PM on Wednesday, February 24th, 2021.

ACF’s goal for this grant opportunity is to support strategic collaborations that prioritize leadership development and allow Alaskans to address the root causes of challenging social justice issues within their communities and across the state. We invite you to submit a proposal to meet this goal.

Nonprofits, tribes, schools, faith-based organizations, local government agencies, programs, and grassroots organizations may apply for programmatic and sustainable general operating support.

Grant awards through this program will range from $5,000 to $15,000 and may be eligible for renewal for an additional year. ACF anticipates awarding 8 to 12 grants in mid April 2021.

This is the fourth grant cycle for The Social Justice Fund for Alaska, following its pilot grant cycle in Spring 2017. The Social Justice Fund was created in 2015 when John Rubini and Clare Bertucio made a generous $1 million pledge to support organizations leading progressive and social justice work in Alaska.
