Social Change

Established in February of 2022, Social Change projects are those led by Black, Latinx, Multiracial, Indigenous and other People of Color (POC) community organizers and organizations. All projects eligible to participate in other CMF categories could be a fit for the Social Change program. The purpose is to support leaders and communities that are frequently underrepresented in the funding landscape.
