Offer: Offer: A.J. Muste Memorial Insitute Grants for Grassroots Activists

Stumbled across this and thought some PulseWire folks might be interested in applying!

AJ Muste Memorial Institute's Social Justice Fund currently makes 8 to 10 grants annually of up to $2,000 for grassroots activist projects in the US and around the world, giving priority to those with small budgets and little access to more mainstream funding sources.


The Muste Institute's Social Justice Fund considers proposals:

* for new projects or campaigns, or efforts to expand existing work
* for projects with expense budgets under $50,000
* for projects which are local, regional, national or global in scope
* from groups located anywhere in the world
* from grassroots organizations with annual expenses of less than $500,000
* from groups with limited or no access to more mainstream funding sources
* from groups that may be unincorporated or incorporated*
* from groups with or without 501(c)3 status or a fiscal sponsor*
* from groups which have not received Social Justice Grants from us in at least two years

The Social Justice Fund's priority is to support:

* direct grassroots activism and organizing
* groups with diverse, representative and democratic internal leadership structures
* groups which have or can obtain sufficient economic and in-kind support from a diversity of sources to carry out their regular work, but need additional support for a particular project

Youth Action in Economic Development is much innterested to be considered with the grant since we have already started it with the funding from Road To Relief, a group comprise of muslim women.
Out of 200 registered women, only 20 have been considered for the trainning, but there are alot of empowering projects that lack funding like Revolving Fund for those already doing bussiness so that they can boost them.

Guide me well on this.

Thanks in advance.
