Community Organizations Awarded $159,199 for Organizing and Advocacy

November 24, 2018

GCF recognizes that the strength of our communities lies in harnessing the wisdom within all neighborhoods to drive equitable, sustainable change. This fall we awarded Strengthening Communities Through Organizing and Advocacy grants totaling $159,199 to seven visionary nonprofit organizations. While we did not receive co-investment dollars for these grants, we strongly believe that such work is integral to achieving an equitable future for our region.
