A New World is Rising

Groundswell Action Fund was founded by women of color on a simple but revolutionary premise … those most excluded from democracy should be at the center of transforming it.

Our Blueprint

We center electoral organizing efforts led by women and trans people of color.

  • $9.7M in grants have been moved to the grassroots since our inception in 2017
  • 98% of the money we move goes to women of color-led organizing
  • 48 organizations across 49 states and territories received funding in 2021
