Intersecting Crises Demand Bold Action
Our partners, individually and collectively, have stepped up to move resources to the frontlines of the escalating and intersecting crises of climate change, rising economic inequality, demands for racial justice, attacks on democracy, and the COVID pandemic.
The Emergent Fund supports rapid response grassroots organizing and power building in Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities who are facing injustice based on racial, ethnic, religious and other forms of discrimination.

The Democracy Frontlines Fund, initiated by the Libra Foundation and guided by a Brain Trust of accountable movement advisors, is leveraging millions of new dollars to fund Black-led organizers fighting for free and fair elections and working to defund prisons and police.
LIFT (Labor Innovations for the 21st Century)
A partnership between labor and philanthropy, the LIFT Fund supports collaborations between community-based social justice organizations and organized labor to advance worker safety, wellness and economic security.
Community Infrastructure Fund for Mutual Aid
Launched by the Omidyar Foundation, this fund supports organizing, knowledge sharing, convening platforms, and other tools and resources that allow mutual aid to sustain, scale, and grow.
