About Borealis Philanthropy
As a philanthropic intermediary, Borealis Philanthropy builds bridges between funders and organizers by creating opportunities for impact-driven investment in movements building a future that serves all of us. We connect Grantmakers to organizations that share their mission. We team with philanthropy to conceive, develop, and implement grantmaking initiatives that resource the many innovative organizations within each of our respective grantmaking funds. Through our collaborative funds, we create opportunities for donors to learn from the organizers on the ground and provide resources to leaders, organizations, and movements pursuing transformational change. In partnering with philanthropy, we remove barriers to funding for grassroots organizations and invest in intersectional movement work across communities so that they have the resources they need to thrive.
About Black Led Movement Fund
For generations, Black-led social justice institutions have been under-resourced and their leaders have not received the support to develop professionally and personally. As a new generation of leaders shapes the conversation about race, criminalization, and gender-based violence in America, the Black-led Movement Fund (BLMF) has developed a coalition of donors and grant partners to transform systems of oppression by supporting intersectional Black-led organizing and institutions to build and activate bases of power within local communities. This work is facilitated through direct grantmaking, capacity building, movement-wide support, donor development and education, and coordination with other philanthropic partners to help resource the movement.?
