The Ben & Jerry’s Foundation offers competitive grants to not-for-profit, grassroots community organizing groups throughout the United States. They fund organizations working to bring about progressive social change by addressing the underlying conditions of societal and environmental problems through constituent-led organizing and activist strategies.
Their broad goals are to further social and environmental justice and support sustainable and just food systems.
The first step is to submit a letter of interest on-line. Letters of interest may be submitted between July 1st and September 15th. Based on the letter of interest, an organization may be approved to submit a full proposal.
They fund organizations with budgets under $500,000. Only organizations with 501(c)3 status, or who have a fiscal agent with this status are eligible to apply.
