Youth Organizing COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund

FCYO has created a rapid response fund to support youth organizing groups in sustaining their organizations in this time and responding to the COVID-19 crisis. Funds will be designated for organizations that engage young people of color, low-income young people, and gender oppressed young people in collective action for systemic change. Funds should be used to help organizations make necessary pivots in program and strategy during this crisis. Grants will be up to $2,000 based on budget and need. FCYO has an initial pool of $50,000 for this fund, and will continue to raise funds with the possibility of expanding the number and size of grants.We will accept applications on a rolling basis beginning Monday April 6, 2020 until all funds are spent.
