Another World is Possible Fund

About This Fund

We are living through a moment that calls for deep solidarity, interdependence, and radical generosity, a moment that requires us to claim our power to make the world we know is possible. This is why Chinook Fund and Transformative Leadership for Change (TLC) partnered to launch the Another World is Possible Fund.

As the pandemic crisis continues, very different visions of our world are unfolding.  In one scenario, we see increased authoritarianism, corporate control, competition over resources, and the decimation of vulnerable communities.  In another scenario, we see the emergence of an inclusive democracy, a regenerative economy, increased interdependence, and the opportunity for all communities to thrive.

Recognizing unique opportunities for radical, systemic change at this moment, the Fund prioritizes funding groups that have been historically under-resourced or excluded by mainstream philanthropy. This includes Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) led organizations and those using community organizing as a primary strategy. The goals of the Fund are to (1) Raise $1M  and redistribute as general operating grants for COVID relief, rapid response organizing, organizational sustainability, and resilience; (2) Provide increased funding for BIPOC-led organizations and constituent-led groups organizing for systemic change; and (3) Organize other foundations to invest in this fund and increase support to BIPOC-led organizations in Colorado.

About The Host Organization

Chinook Fund has a 34-year legacy of seeding grassroots movements across the state through community-led grantmaking. Transformative Leadership for Change is a new initiative that supports the healing, transformation, solidarity, and radical visions of people of color leading social justice organizations. We are two complementary capacity-building organizations in the Colorado progressive ecosystem, partnering together in the spirit of abundance, interdependence, and mutual aid to raise resources for those who are forging the path to the world we believe is possible.
