FUNDING for SOCIAL JUSTICE WORK: Equality in Love, Life and Liberties
Pamela Burke. CreateSpace, 2017. 342pp. On order
We are living in trying times! We need to not only resist, but take collective action. This grant directory is for all the social justice and advocacy organizations, grassroots groups, student initiatives, nonprofit organizations, and faith-based programs devoted to progressive change. More than 250 private funding opportunities are included that support social justice, equality in love and gender identity, diversity, democracy, environment, women, art-based activism and more. Social justice leaders will find this directory helpful in identifying possible funders and partners with like values. Together, grant-makers and organizations can preserve and protect our physical and social environment, create a more equitable world for everyone, and give voice, power and control to those most affected. Compiled by Pamela Burke, a successful professional grant writer with decades of experience, this book also includes bonus sections about how to write a grant and other fundraising methods!
