Still We Rise Fund

Host Organization: Common Counsel Foundationmdi-circle-small Oakland, CA, United States mdi-circle-small


A group of allied funders are stepping up to help meet some of the growing needs that grassroots social, racial, economic, and environmental justice organizations are articulating during these challenging times through a combination of both aligned and pooled funding.

The Still We Rise Fund is designed to be a nimble pooled fund that is facilitating, scaling and accelerating the delivery of responsive funding to a diverse range of community-based organizations across the country. While the fund will work to adapt to emergent community and movement needs – on a range of issues – core priority areas will include:

•Strengthening grassroots networks and alliances;
•Convening community organizations and developing responsive strategies for resistance and advancement;
•Building and strengthening the community defense infrastructure;
•Developing and advancing community-defined solutions;
•Expanding membership in significant and new ways;
•Amplifying political education and leadership development;
•Impacting cultural narratives;
•Supporting mass mobilizations.
