Emergent Fund (fiscally sponsored by the Amalgamated Charitable Foundation)
Emergent Fund is a queer women of color-led, movement-aligned participatory grantmaker with intersectional, collective liberation values. We fund rapid response and emergent organizing led by frontline Black, Indigenous, and organizers of color with trust-based, no-string-attached grants. A nationally recognized philanthropy culture disruptor and praxis leader, Emergent Fund challenges power in who we fund as well as with how we fund. Our 100% women of color and Indigenous decision-making Advisory Council and our grantees all come from directly impacted communities committed to building movement and transforming crisis into change. Emergent Fund supports the work of communities under threat to build their own reality: the one that would emerge on the other side of crisis with a powerful new vision for what comes next.
