This summer, fellow Faizah Barlas is creating the Toolkit Report, which will function as a resource for grassroots organizations to understand Grassroots Funds’ Guiding Values and provide examples of grassroots organizations and projects that successfully embody those values. The report will explain two of Grassroots Funds’ core values: Just Transition and Shifting Power. Read more about Faizah's process to unpack these terms:

This June, the Grassroots Fund, in deep collaboration with volunteer grant reviewers, distributed $374,099 to 121 grassroots groups throughout New England. Of those groups, 29 were awarded Young Leader grants, and - count ‘em - 92 were awarded Grow grants. All told, this was the Grassroots Fund’s biggest grant round ever.
