Muste Institute: Seeking Applications for Social Justice Fund
Deadline: 15 October 2018
The A.J. Muste Memorial Institute is accepting applications for its Social Justice Fund to support grassroots activist projects in the US and around the world, giving priority to those with small budgets and little access to more mainstream funding sources.

The Muste Institute’s Social Justice Fund considers proposals:
- for new projects or campaigns, or efforts to expand existing work
- for ongoing projects or campaigns
- for capacity building, leadership development, and resource sustainability
- for projects with expense budgets under $50,000
- for projects which are local, regional, national or global in scope
- from groups located anywhere in the world
- from grassroots organizations with annual expenses of less than $500,000
- from groups with limited access to more mainstream funding sources
- from groups that may be unincorporated or incorporated
- from groups with or without 501(c)3 status or a fiscal sponsor
