Open Application Pilot
We are excited to announce that Acton Family Giving will be accepting applications for grant funding for select giving areas of our Empathy Building Initiative as a time-bound pilot process. We are eager to partner with nonprofits across the U.S. to support the important work of connecting people from different backgrounds, ideologies, beliefs, and communities. We also hope to test our systems and learn through this pilot to inform future processes and approaches.
We intend to award up to $500,000 in grant funding. Grant amounts will vary depending on the scope and nature of the work, and will range from $15,000 to $75,000. All grants will be unrestricted funding and should be considered exploratory, one-time grants. Due to limited funds not every grant seeker will receive an award.
Current Acton Family Giving grantees should not participate in this pilot, and instead contact their program officer.
