Grants to Washington Black-led nonprofit organizational partnerships to advance Black communities in eligible locations. The purpose of the funding is to promote policy changes that reduce inequities for communities and populations that have been affected by racist systems and policies. Applicants must provide services and activities in King County.
This Request For Proposals (RFP) invites proposals from community-led and community-engaged efforts to transform systems and policies for stronger community connections, economic opportunity, better health, and/or housing that will decrease and/or prevent continued inequity in communities that have been most harmed by racist and oppressive policies and systems, particularly low-income communities and communities of color in King County.
What the Foundation Seeks to Support
Funding and Allowable Activities
The Foundation recognizes provision of stipends and direct services can serve as a point of contact and an initial exposure to organizing and systems change work. They also recognize the challenges inherent in working on long-term systems change while foregoing immediate needs that can be met through immediate support. Simultaneously, philanthropy historically has underinvested in critical organizing and systems change work. The core purpose of the COO Systems and Policy work is to support the organizing, advocacy, research and policy work needed to make a more just society. Organizations are encouraged to develop proposals that respect the intellectual property, time value and other resource costs of doing community-based work as appropriate for the individual organization or coalition. This includes stipends for participant time, travel or childcare as well as staff time to help community members navigate systems and receive social supports.
Community Engagement Spectrum
COO seeks to support community leadership and deep community engagement in systems and policy change efforts. The community engagement spectrum (above) provides a framework for different depths of community participation in decision making, along with examples of each type.
