Phoenix Fund for Workers and Communities

Host Organization: The New World Foundationmdi-circle-small New York, NY, United States mdi-circle-small


The Phoenix Fund’s grantmaking budget is raised through collaborating donors and foundations, with New World providing core support, fiscal sponsorship, staffing and overhead costs. To date, almost $10 million has been funded in general support grants and a small seed grants program. Through grantmaking programs, we are investing in the frontline organizations and collaborations that are building economic justice movements from the bottom up.

We are also investing in the creation of solidarity campaigns and networks that will help activists turn the vicious circle of globalization, which pits one group of workers against another, into a virtuous circle, where working people can come together to raise the floor for all.

The fund focuses on the realities of globalization by multinational corporations and regional free trade agreements which impose serious losses for workers and their communities. In both the global North and South and within American society the result is an enormous divide between rich and poor further compounded by inequities of race, gender, and national origin.
