Standing alone is not enough. Please join us today.

From Our Board President and Executive Director: Grassroots organizers around New England have trusted the Grassroots Fund for 23 years to provide resources and support for their projects. However, the mounting challenges we face – environmental, social, and political - require that we re-imagine not only the what, but the how, of our work.

Does one person matter?

If you believe in the unifying power of civic engagement... If you believe in reserving seats at the table – or building a new table – for those who are underrepresented, marginalized, or who don’t have a voice at all... If you believe in changemaking that depends on the solidarity of the many rather than the generosity of the few... ...please, join our Spring Appeal and consider becoming a sustaining donor today.

Join the Grassroots Movement in 2018

In 2017, we were overwhelmed by the depth and breadth of project ideas and solutions that came through our grants program and RootSkills Training Series! Groups are not waiting for top-down solutions but are seeking innovative and transformative change at the critical intersections of climate change, health, and equity. Become a part of the movement in 2018!

April (and every month) is Environmental Justice Month at the Grassroots Fund!

Julia Dundorf

As the New England Grassroots Environment Fund celebrated its 21st birthday on April 1st we believe it is the perfect time focus on one of our core values - Environmental Justice (EJ). While we believe every month should represent EJ month, we’re celebrating the founding vision of the organization with a series of events this month to focus on how our communities and our neighbors can connect, share and act together within the context of building a movement toward environmental justice.
