Headwaters Foundation is now accepting applications for Community Innovation and Giving Project Grants.
Headwaters offers Community Innovation Grants in partnership with the Bush Foundation to support communities to use problem-solving processes that lead to more effective, equitable and sustainable solutions. We think of this as civic research and development, allowing communities to develop and test new solutions to community challenges. Applications due by 5pm February 1. Grants range from $500 to $10,000. For more information contact Senior Program Officer Melissa Rudnick.
Giving Project Grants provide general operating support for organizations that use a community organizing approach to address root causes of injustice. The Giving Project Grant funds groups that have an organized constituency base, a clear analysis of structural causes behind the challenges their community faces, and concrete goals and strategies to build power and change systems. Applications due by 5pm on March 1. Grants are for $10,000. For more information contact Giving Project Associate Allison Johnson.
