Social Justice Fund Northwest – Rapid Response and Seed Grants
Grassroots organizations can apply for Rapid Response project-specific grants of $2,000 to help them quickly adapt to the changing political climate with actions/strategies that could not have been anticipated. Seed Grants of $2,000 are available to new and emerging groups that are not yet qualified to receive SJF’s bigger grants.

Both Rapid Response and Seed Grants are awarded monthly, usually from February through November – or until funds are spent down.

Seattle Foundation – The Whitehorse Foundation
Since 1990, this grant seeks to improve the quality of life for Snohomish County residents by focusing on programs that aim to prevent problems/challenges. Letters of inquiry are accepted throughout the year. In particular, it funds comprehensive services that respond to the full range of child, youth, and family needs.

The 2019 Nimble Grant program supports access to healthcare and reduced health disparities among underserved populations in the Puget Sound region.
