The Seattle Foundation is inviting applications for its Neighbor to Neighbor Fund (N2N).

Founded in 1991, N2N supports grassroots efforts in South Seattle, White Center, and Kent that increase the engagement, power, and influence of community members affected by poverty and racial disparities. Through the program, grants of up to $7,500 and technical assistance will be awarded in support of grassroots efforts dedicated to achieving these goals, including work that builds the capacity of community members to organize and lead positive change in their communities; that mobilizes community members to work with others to take action or that advocate for policy change; that build trust and relationships within and among community members with a goal of increasing equity and improving the community; and that build partnerships and coalitions among groups and institutions to work together for more equitable neighborhoods.

Eligibility: To be eligible, applicants must be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or have a fiscal sponsor with such status and be led by residents of South Seattle, White Center, or Kent. In addition, applicants must have a small budget (generally under $200,000) and have not received significant grants or contracts.

Deadline: 10/30/2021
