NEEDS OF COMMUNITIES NOW.
RESPONDING TO THE URGENT
Ensures a healthy democracy where everyone participates and the people leading the work are representative of the communities they serve. The Grove Foundation engages with historically under-represented communities through organizations led by people of color, that center equity and are community-based.
This initiative started in 2020 in response to the murder of George Floyd. The Grove Foundation Board approved five years of funding for Black-led organizations doing advocacy work that focuses specifically on Black people, with an emphasis on civic engagement and liberation. This US-based initiative focuses on the South, including the states of Louisiana, Georgia, and Alabama.
Funds a broad range of legal services, policy advocacy, organizing, and coalition building to protect and advance immigrant rights. Emphasis is given to organizations with strong leadership, innovative and broad strategies, and a collaborated and coordinated approach to resources for maximum impact.
We support a wide range of movement organizations focused on comprehensive sex education, birth justice, abortion access, and more. Together, we can work towards a future in which all people have the power to determine their gender, sexuality, and reproductive lives.
Invests in under-resourced people, families, and communities, facilitating access to resources to meet basic needs, attain education and career goals, and build power for systemic change toward economic and social justice.
