FundAction is a new participatory fund making grants for social transformation.
Participatory grant-making seeks to involve those directly affected by the issues — the people that the money intends to help — in decision-making about where the money goes. It can be a more effective way of reaching people and addressing issues of power.
The new fund offers three kinds of grants: Renew, Rethink, Resist.
Cultural activists can become a member of FundAction, and meet digitally and in person. A dedicated online platform allows group decision-making and discussions, and proposal submission and review.
