Freedonia Funding Round 2010 Now Open!

Grants support grassroots organizing for radical and democratic social change

Are you involved in a grassroots community organizing project?

Your group could be eligible for a Freedonia grant.

Freedonia is a Canadian organization that provides small grants to support grassroots organizing that promotes radical and democratic social change.

Freedonia was founded in 1997 by Gary Moffatt as an expression of his lifetime commitment to anarchism and to building social and economic alternatives to capitalism.  In keeping with this anti-authoritarian vision, Freedonia is a catalyst for the development of movements promoting radical democratic and systemic change.

In our 2010 Granting Period, Freedonia invites applications for projects which are focused on expanding grassroots, face to face participation in social, economic and political activism through organizing, training and community-building.

Applications for the 2010 Granting Period must be submitted by February 19, 2010.

Freedonia generally makes grants up to $5,000.  Freedonia funding is limited to projects located within Ontario and British Columbia, Canada.

Freedonia recognizes and values the diversity of our communities and our movements. Freedonia is committed to ending all forms of discrimination and to the realization of full social and economic equality.   In this spirit, Freedonia takes proactive measures regarding funding applicants from equity seeking groups.  Favourable consideration will be given to projects that expressly and actively promote social and economic equality.
