Support emergent strategies that help communities respond to discriminatory political and social conditions and seek long-term economic and social justice.
The Emergent Fund provides rapid response funding to grassroots organizations in communities of color who are facing injustice based on racial, ethnic, religious and other forms of discrimination. The Emergent Fund was established following the 2016 elections as a partnership of three donor organizations: Solidaire Network, Women Donors Network, and Threshold Foundation. The Fund makes grants to two types of efforts: 1) Efforts that support emergent strategies that help communities respond to rapidly changing conditions, which includes resisting new or amplified threats and building power to move a proactive, progressive agenda and 2) Efforts seeking long-term social justice and economic justice in a discriminatory political and social climate. By providing fast funding in emergency moments, the fund seeks to supply communities and their allies with the resources they need fight back against the policy goals of the Trump Administration that threaten vulnerable communities.
