Resist, a Boston-based nonprofit organization welcomes applications from grassroots organizations led by those most impacted by intersecting systems of oppression that are working to advance justice and liberation. Two types of grants will be awarded:
General Support Grants - Up to $4,000 will be awarded to groups that are building movements for justice and liberation and against systemic oppression through grassroots/cultural organizing, art-making, and resilience building.
Accessibility Grants - Up to $4,000 will be awarded for work that specifically allows a group's work to be more accessible to community members with specific accessibility needs.
Eligible organizations must:
Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand announce the opening of their first cycle of Community Grants which will donate $1 million to local, grassroots organizations that are creating more equitable futures for Black Americans. The funds are from Michael Jordan and the company’s $100 million commitment that was established in 2020.
U.S.-based 501(c)(3) organizations working to improve outcomes for the Black community with annual budgets of $3 million per year or less are encouraged to apply. Nonprofits must sign up via the YourCause online platform to complete the grant request.
