Solidaire's Movement Infrastructure Fund supports work that provides long-term scaffolding for movement organizations and formations to transform what’s possible.
The Movement Infrastructure Fund invests in bold visions that are often overlooked and underfunded. Supporting work that is led by those most impacted by injustice, the Movement Infrastructure Fund invests in movements that work to dismantle and disrupt extractive, exploitative, and oppressive systems.
We seek imaginative, creative solutions that lift human dignity and agency. We believe there is no shortage of grassroots genius, innovation and agency. What is missing is the right investment in the long-term infrastructure that movements need to win.
Examples of movement infrastructure include buildings and land, new incorporations or entities, democratic governance structures, expertise and skill building, system development and sustained people power. We also welcome participatory research projects that are led by/informed by folks directly impacted and which look to create or invest more deeply in movement infrastructure projects with broad impact.
To be eligible:
- Work should be led by the most directly impacted people working on the front lines.
