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 the Disability and Inclusion Fund
The Disability Inclusion Fund (DIF) is a donor collaborative fund that supports U.S. groups run by and for disabled people to lead transformational change. The fund is supported by the Presidents’ Council on Disability Inclusion in Philanthropy, which is comprised of foundation presidents who are committed to disability inclusion as part of improving diversity, equity, and inclusion within philanthropy. The guiding values of this fund are aligned with several principles of disability justice including intersectionality, leadership of those most impacted, and cross-movement solidarity. The fund strives towards movement funding that is accountable to the disability rights movement. Involvement of those most impacted by injustice and/or exclusion in strategies to advance justice and inclusion forms a core practice for this fund.
