Groundswell Fund is the largest funder of the U.S. Reproductive Justice (RJ) movement. For more than a decade, we have enabled foundations and individual donors to increase the impact of their giving by offering a different kind of philanthropic model.
Different in Who We Are
We’re a program staff of women of color and gender non-conforming people of color who come directly out of community and labor organizing and have a combined 70 years of grassroots organizing and civic engagement experience within communities of color; a board comprised of grassroots leaders shaping strategy alongside a few funders and donors.
Different in Who We Support
We support women of color (WOC), low income women, and transgender people who are organizing at the grassroots.
Different in How We Support the Field
We support the field not just through grants, but through capacity building support focused on boosting grassroots power, and funder organizing that lifts up our grantees with a larger audience of funders and donors who can move resources to their work, whether or not these resources come through our doors; and moving at least 80 percent of the dollars that come in our doors back out to the field.
