Emergent Fund: People's Bailout Fund
About This Fund
We’re committed to acting swiftly and responsively with deep trust in Indigenous, Black, and people of color organizers and those closest to the harm. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be gathering resources and moving money quickly to the organizations, collectives, and mutual aid projects across the country - the ones that need bailing out the most. We’re focused on getting resources to the organizations and communities most in need of support during the current COVID-19 crisis. The most effective way to do that is by supporting grassroots organizing.
Emergent Fund is seeking your support in launching a $500,000 fund for grassroots organizing. Emergent Fund’s role in the philanthropic ecosystem is to move resources quickly, but we know this moment will shift our work for the long-haul.
