Groundswell Fund strengthens U.S. movements for reproductive and social justice by resourcing intersectional grassroots organizing and centering the leadership of women of color – particularly those who are Black, Indigenous, and Transgender. We support the field in three ways:

#PhilanthropySoWhite

“Inviting people of color into structures in which we are accountable, not to our own communities, but to white millionaires and billionaires who have the power to hire and fire us, to take our ideas under advisement when they make their decisions, is not actually an invitation into power.”

Groundswell Fund’s Vanessa Daniel in conversation with Ford Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, The Nellie Mae Education Foundation, and the Decolonizing Wealth project on dismantling white supremacy in philanthropy.

We are one of the largest funders of women of color-led organizing in the U.S., supporting more than 150 organizations across the U.S.
