The Defending the Dream Fund partnership, made up of the Hill-Snowdon Foundation, General Service Foundation and other partners, came together this spring to support grassroots organizing in under-resourced areas to protect targeted communities, resist the draconian and destructive policies of the Trump era and work towards a hopeful dream of a just, equitable and caring society.
We are very excited to announce the 19 organizations selected in the first round of grants.
In response to this unique moment and opportunity, the Hill-Snowdon Foundation has developed the Making Black Lives Matter Initiative (MBLM), a three year grantmaking and strategic co-funding initiative that seeks to maximize this historic moment to begin building long term institutional and political power for Black social change and racial justice.
