Black Voters Matter Fund
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.
We are a channel into which individual donors and foundations can pour resources to reach vital work at the grassroots.
Groundswell Action Fund provides unrestricted general support grants that allow organizations to build their infrastructure and avoid the harm caused by boom-and-bust electoral funding that only shows up to elect certain candidates during a key election year.
Groundswell Action Fund stands in the gap for organizations, providing them robust infrastructure support to build their capacity.
When we started, we had a $50,000 grant and one staffer. Groundswell’s early-stage development is critical to creating more of us. The returns may not be immediate but when they pour in, they will be exponential and will transform our movement, creating new leaders and stronger women-of-color-led organizations.Tram Nguyen
