The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF) will accept Letters of Intent (LOI) for the Social Justice Fund for Alaska from December 1, 2017 until 5:00 PM on Friday January 5, 2018.
The Alaska Community Foundation’s goals for the Social Justice Fund grant opportunity are 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 10 grants in early February 2018. The total 2018 funding available for this program is $100,000.
This is the second 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.
Those interested in applying are strongly encouraged to call ACF staff prior to submitting a LOI.
