The Ben & Jerry’s Foundation offers competitive grants to not-for-profit, grassroots community organizations throughout the United States and in Vermont, working to bring about progressive social change by addressing the underlying conditions of societal and environmental problems. We will only consider proposals from grassroots, constituent-led organizations that are using community-organizing strategies to accomplish their goals or from organizations that provide technical support and/or resources to such groups.
We are happy to consider requests for project support as well as requests for general operating support.
We make one-year grants for up to $15,000. Only organizations with 501(c)3 status, or who have a fiscal agent with this status are eligible to apply.
