Groundswell Fund

For nearly 20 years, Groundswell Fund has been building an irrigation system to resource social justice movements – a channel into which individual donors and foundations can pour resources to reach vital work at the grassroots. During that time, they have become one of the largest funders of women of color-led organizing in the United States and the Reproductive Justice Movement. Designed by women of color and trans and gender-expansive people of color – including many of the most prominent grassroots movement leaders of our time – Groundswell’s approach is thoughtful, sound, and well-aimed at the most promising and impactful organizations. They are proof that when a foundation is run by and for those who come out of grassroots organizing, the giving looks different.
