Freedonia is a Canadian organization that provides small grants to support grassroots organizing that promotes radical and democratic social change.

Freedonia was founded in 1997 by Gary Moffatt as an expression of his lifetime commitment to anarchism and to building social and economic alternatives to capitalism. In keeping with this anti-authoritarian vision, Freedonia is a catalyst for the development of movements promoting radical democratic and systemic change.

In our 2017 Granting Period, Freedonia continues to invite applications for projects which are focused on expanding grassroots, face to face participation in social, economic and political activism through organizing, training and community-building.

Freedonia normally provides grants of up to $5,000. (However, we also offer a small number of grants for projects that are seeking less than $1,000, which are somewhat easier to get. We also offer one grant per year of longterm funding that will provide funds of $5,000 for three consecutive years). Freedonia funding is limited to projects located within Ontario and British Columbia, Canada.
