Welcome to the Indivisible Grassroots Organizing Wins (GROW) Grant Program! This program is designed to provide direct financial support to Indivisible groups  for collaboration and capacity-building projects. Using the process below, Indivisible groups can apply for grant money for projects, supplies, trainings, vendors and more.

 

Grant Awards and Requirements

Project involving only 1 Indivisible group(s).

 

Up to $2500

Project involving 4 to 9 Indivisible groups.

Up to $1000

Project involving 2 to 3 Indivisible groups.

 

Up to $4000

Project involving 10+ Indivisible groups and/or is a statewide or cross-state organizing effort.

  1. Who can apply: Those requesting and accepting grants must be active members of an Indivisible group that is registered with Indivisible, and be using the money to fund activities approved by their group and its leadership.
  2. What will be funded: Grant money must be used for Indivisible-led activities that increase collaboration between three or more Indivisible groups and/or for activities that build capacity for the group(s) involved by focusing on recruiting new members, developing leadership capacity or increasing skills in racial equity and inclusion. (What does “capacity-building entail? Learn more here.)
  3. How the funds will be received: One of the groups involved in any grant must have (or commit to join) a Distributed Fundraising account (this is so that we can distribute the funds to you seamlessly and maintain 501c4 compliance). If you do not have a Distributed Fundraising account, set one up now. NOTE: registering and activating your account can take a couple of weeks, and you cannot receive grant funds without one.
