Opportunities Available from the Surdna Foundation: Strong Local Economies Program!

The Surdna Foundation seeks to foster just and sustainable communities throughout the United States. The Foundation’s Strong Local Economies Program supports the development of robust and sustainable economies that include a diversity of businesses and access to quality jobs. The Foundation aims to create opportunities for upward economic mobility among communities that have experienced historical economic barriers, including low-income people, communities of color, women, and immigrants. The three main categories of work in this program area include the following: Business Development and Acceleration, Equitable Economic Development, and Job Quality and Career Pathways. The Foundation welcomes proposals that overlap with its two other funding programs: Sustainable Environments and Thriving Cultures. Nonprofit organizations may submit online letters of inquiry at any time.

The New York Council for the Humanities is introducing Vision and Action Grants!

NYCH has redesigned its grant programs: Vision Grants (formerly Planning Grants) provide up to $1,500 to develop ideas for public humanities programs that are built in partnership with our community. Action Grants (formerly Project Grants) provide up to $5,000 to launch humanities programs that are dynamic and address meaningful issues across the state. Vision and Action grants can begin only after Council support is issued.  Although proposals are accepted on a rolling basis, all materials must be received at least 3 months prior to the start of your visioning process.
