Solutions Project’s grantmaking program invests in leaders and community-based organizations that are making renewable energy more affordable and accessible, focusing on communities that have been disproportionately impacted by climate change and failed energy policies. We encourage equity-rooted strategies, working to ensure that community benefits, diverse leadership, and just transitions are central to the call for 100%.
While our grantmaking work is focused in the United States, not-for-profit or charitable organizations based and registered as such in Mexico (Civil Association) or Canada (Charitable Organization) are welcome to apply.
The Fighter Fund is a rapid response grantmaking program seeding forward-thinking, place-based solutions and providing real-time support to pivotal frontline leaders accelerating the transition to 100% clean energy in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Resources are designed to support movement moments through organizing and direct action, communications that build public will and cultural power, and coalition building. Ideal grantees are tax-exempt organizations that are governed by the communities in which they serve, mobilize marginalized communities, have the capacity to leverage resources for additional funders, and are experimenting with innovative tactics to activate constituencies in advancing 100% clean energy for 100% of people. Grants range from $500 to $15,000.
The Fighter Fund’s resources are committed for 2017 and therefore the application is closed. The Fighter Fund application will reopen in January of 2018.
