Our small staff has never had sufficient capacity to develop a comprehensive media and communications strategy let alone implement it. Yet we know that policymakers - our primary target - are influenced by media coverage. Grantee Partner
Purpose of the Program
Capacity Grants are intended to provide grassroots and frontline organizations with catalytic support for movement building activities and communication strategies. The Fund prioritizes activities that will clearly strengthen an organization’s capacity to effectively understand and reach target audiences; activities that will help to tell the story of your constituencies and work in a more impactful way; as well as investments that will improve your organization’s strategy, infrastructure, and skills to more effectively organize your base and meet communication needs and opportunities.
Currently, this program is invitation-only and does not accept unsolicited proposals.
The Capacity Grants Program prioritizes organizations led by and serving BIPOC communities; farmers; farmworkers; fisherpeople; and food workers.
Eligible activities include, but are not limited to: short-term communications coaching or consulting; purchase of communications equipment; updates to communications tools, platforms, or systems; communications-based professional development opportunities, including targeted trainings and conferences; and movement-building activity that an applicant organization deems beneficial.
Range and Term
Grant amounts will be contingent on demonstrated need, alignment with the purpose and criteria of the program, and the Fund’s giving capacity in any given cycle.
