Opportunity Fund grants are intended for special projects or emergencies that are not part of an organization’s ongoing work. These activities are frequently in response to rapidly emerging issues and might include: demonstrations and rallies, coalition efforts, conferences, or forums.
The Opportunity Fund has supported a wide range of community groups, from ACT UP Philadelphia to Witness to Innocence. Check out our list of recent grantees to see if the Opportunity Fund is right for your group.
The Opportunity Fund makes grants to groups that:
- Meet all basic eligibility requirements and funding criteria
- Are facing an emerging issue, project, or situation that is not part of the organization’s ongoing work
- Have not received an Opportunity Fund grant within the past 12 months
Proposals must be complete and submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on the 1st of each month.
