The Open Meadows Foundation offers grants of up to $2,000 for projects that promote gender, racial, and economic justice, and are led by and benefit women and girls, particularly those from vulnerable communities. The projects should reflect the diversity of the community in both its leadership and its organization, and promote racial, social, economic, and environmental justice. In addition, the organizations should have limited financial access or have encountered obstacles in their search for funding. Preference is given to first-time applicants. Interested applicants will find this grant opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
