Astraea’s Grant-making Philosophy

Search Grants Easily
Premium Members can search for grants and donors. We have a filtered search feature to identify exact opportunities you need. Learn more.

Astraea’s grant-making is guided by their understanding of how social change and movements for justice develop. Astraea believes that:

  • Social change results from the powerful collective action of groups of people working together.
  • Organizations that are committed to addressing the intersections of various oppressions, and demonstrate commitment to social, racial, economic and gender justice, are most likely to help build transformative and liberationist movements for change.
  • Art and cultural work are powerful mediums for resistance, cultural change and inspiration – all critical components of lasting justice movements.
  • Communities that are most affected by various issues are best positioned to identify effective priorities and strategies for social change in their communities.
  • Social justice funding institutions – like Astraea – seek to help redistribute wealth and power in society in order to help finance the sectors of movements that have the least access to mainstream funding resources.

  • Are inclusive and reflect the diversity of the geographic region in which they do their work
  • Show an understanding of the connections among different oppressions facing LGBTQI people, and have a commitment to address other forms of oppression based on class, race, ethnicity, age, physical and mental ability, gender, national identity, and religious affiliation
  • Develop leadership and build communities’ capacity to achieve social change, particularly through proposals that strengthen an organization’s ability to organize. Organizing may be defined as activities that actively engage people affected by societal problems in the process of identifying and pursuing solutions.
  • Works in alliance and/or builds coalition with other social justice organizations (e.g. sex worker rights, human rights, etc.)
  • Have organizational structures and practices in place that reflect social justice principles

  • Private business or profit-making efforts (including business development)
  • Organizations based in the Global North proposing projects with partners based in Astraea’s funding regions
  • Organizations with strong leadership from only 1 individual
  • Individual projects (e.g. graduate research, fellowships, etc.)
  • Projects that are sponsored by a university, college, or other academic institution
  • Groups whose sole purpose is to provide charity to individuals, direct social service projects, research projects, or one-time events that are not linked to ongoing social change organizing strategies
  • Efforts that endorse candidates for public office (incl. political parties and election campaigns)
  • Capital campaigns, endowments, or deficit financing
  • Organizations with budgets of over $500,000 US.
