For the 2017 Funding Round, Freedonia invites 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. We want to hear from people who are wearing out the soles of their shoes going door-to-door, holding meetings in community centres, bringing together their neighbours, discussing and planning together, finding common ground, opening their doors, teaching, learning and practicing active resistance.
Board members will rate applications based on set criteria. Decisions will be based on the Board’s evaluation of an applicant’s performance in each area.
The specific criteria currently being rated are as follows:
Project grant recipients were required to prepare a report at the end of the grant period in the past that outlined their accomplishments.
