A rapid response fund for direct action, community mobilization, and healing justice.

Available to coalitions, organizations, and non-501(c)(3) efforts.
Open all year and accepts proposals in many formats: written narrative, a phone call, or a short video.
Dedicated to work led by young women of color, queer, trans, and intersex youth of color and low-income youth. 

How it works:

  • Proposals are accepted all year, and reviewed on the 15th day of the month. Faster reviews are possible for emergencies. Proposals must be submitted by midnight (in your time zone) on the 14th to be considered
  • Groups are notified within one to two weeks after the review date & checks are generally mailed within two to three weeks.
  • Grants can be made for up to $5,000 USD. Larger grants may be made on a case-by-case basis.
  • Coalitions or joint proposals can request up to $5,000 per group. For example, if a joint application is submitted by two organizations, you can request up to $10,000. The maximum amount a coalition or joint application can request is $15,000 for a partnership of three or more groups.

The Mobilize Power Fund is a funding project of the Third Wave Fund.
