Our Application (Private Folder)
Solidaire is interested in movement infrastructure proposals that support resistance through systems and tools, as well as proposals that build transformative futures through agency and scale.
- starting or expanding a community-owned broadband initiative;
- building out communications tools or staff to advance narrative or culture change;
- intervening on cases against corporations or the government with progressive legal assistance;
expanding organizers in rural places;
- security training and equipment purchases; or
campaigns for local housing solutions.
I believe we would be a good fit for their muti-year support program.
Grants range in size from $20,000 to $200,000.

@JackieM Take a look and let me know what you think!
Jackie and I submitted the application!
Reflections on my end
- Video answers were definitely the way to go
- I think we could have been clear that we were looking for a multi-year grant. That would have been transformational.
- Let’s build on the momentum and take our videos to the next level! For example, our answers to question #1 could totally be made into a general video that’s shared widely via social media and featured on our website.
- We really need to figure out how to store photos and videos.
UPDATE: We were rejected for this grant but the benefit is that Jackie created an AMAZING video + I definitely had a better idea of what our network structure is. Maybe next time.
