We begin with residents


Grassroots grantmaking and running grassroots projects require specific expertise and ways of looking at the world.

Grassroots grantmaking and grassroots projects are focused on people as active citizens in local communities, strengthening community democracy, and recognizing and addressing systemic inequities. In this section, we offer a range of articles, tip sheets, program description videos, application samples, and other resources that can give you immediate practical support and/or fuel your development of theory and program or project design.

If you have resources that might be useful to people starting or running grassroots grantmaking programs or resident-led grassroots projects, or that help show the connections between grassroots granting and equity work, please submit them to us so we can consider sharing them with our network.
