Solidaire Network is a community of donor organizers who mobilize quickly to get critical resources and unprecedented amounts of solidarity to the frontlines of social justice movements. The Network envisions a world where racism, economic exploitation, and disregard for the wellbeing of the planet no longer destroys whole communities to benefit a few; a world where all people have power to shape the decisions that affect their lives, and to flourish.
In alignment with Solidaire’s vision, goals, and grantmaking strategies, the Movement Infrastructure Fund supports work that provides long-term scaffolding for movement organizations and formations to transform what’s possible. Supporting work that is led by those most impacted by injustice, the Fund invests in movements that work to dismantle and disrupt extractive, exploitative, and oppressive systems. Solidaire is interested in movement infrastructure proposals that support resistance through systems and tools, as well as proposals that build transformative futures through agency and scale. Examples of movement infrastructure include buildings and land, new incorporations or entities, democratic governance structures, expertise and skill-building, system development, and sustained people power. Solidaire also welcomes participatory research projects that are led by/informed by folks directly impacted and which look to create or invest more deeply in movement infrastructure projects with broad impact.
Applications are due April 23, 2021.
