The Ben & Jerry’s Foundation supports organizations working to bring about progressive social change by addressing the underlying conditions of societal and environmental problems.

One-year grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded to nonprofit, grassroots community-organizing groups in the United States working to further social and environmental justice and in support of sustainable and just-food systems. Grants can be used to support both programming or operational costs.

The foundation will only consider proposals from grassroots, constituent-led organizations with annual budgets under $500,000 that are using direct action, grassroots, and community-organizing strategies to accomplish their goals.

Pre-proposals must be received no later than April 14, 2017. Upon review, select applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by October 19, 2017.

See the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation website for complete eligibility criteria, application instructions, and summaries of grantee projects from previous years.
