Event Details

Since November 2020, the Southern Power Fund has moved over 12 million dollars to over 325 organizations, groups, and formations in 15 states across the US South and Puerto Rico. In the next five years, the Southern Power Fund aims to raise and redistribute $100 million more to Southern movement work. The SPF aims to redistribute funds to groups and organizations that often go unnoticed and are deeply under-resourced by traditional philanthropic efforts. Led by a team of Southern organizers representing both long-standing organizations and new formations throughout the region, the work of the Southern Power Fund (SPF) reflects the reality that BIPOC LGBTQ activists and organizations are leading some of the most brilliant and creative work throughout the region. Join us to hear key lessons learned about how SPF is working to redistribute funds in a way that is aligned with the vision and needs of Southern movement organizations during these times.
