The Buddhist Peace Fellowship has just announced grants of up to $1,000 to support grassroots projects. Under the heading of The Pollination Project, the Fellowship is seeking to support projects that promote the goals of socially engaged Buddhism.
From their announcement:
Since BPF’s inception in 1978, the mandala of socially engaged Buddhism has blossomed. Today’s landscape of political Buddhism is rich and varied: Buddhists are rising to the task on crucial issues from global warming to global hunger, with compassionate hearts and clear insight into the path to end suffering.
This is why we are especially excited to announce a new partnership with The Pollination Project. The Pollination Project gives away $1,000 grants 365 days a year to individuals who are poised to use the money for social change undertakings. TPP would love to fund at least 5 projects from BPFers in the next three months, because they believe socially engaged Buddhists have good ideas about how to transform our world. (We agree!)
Do you have a small, grassroots effort or a fledgling idea that could benefit from a $1,000 investment? Apply for a grant from The Pollination Project! They fund individuals, not established organizations; supplies and materials, but not people’s time. Check out their funding guidelines for more detail and to find out if your idea is eligible.
If your project is centered around a strong analysis of racism, gender and sexuality justice, ableism, capitalism / class war, and/or internationalism – we’d especially love to talk with you about the possibility of nominating your project as one of BPF’s “priority recommendations.” Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to explore this possibility.
