Mo’ Betta Green MarketPlace, 2022 grantee
ANNOUNCEMENT FOR 2023
“Sometimes the next right step is to take a pause.”
After much thought, we have made the collective decision to pause grantmaking for the Another World is Possible Fund during 2023. The reason for this is to center rest, first and foremost. We want to honor the need to pause and regroup while also making space for new energy to flow through and invigorate our vision and strategy. This is an intentional decision to build internal capacity and actively resource the fund.
Vision & History
Since launching in May 2020, we have distributed $935,000 to 95 grassroots organizations (List of grantees). In 2022 alone, we granted $315,000 to 63 organizations. Our combined efforts helped raise $1,065,000 from 15 local and national foundations and 212 individual contributions. We offer our deep gratitude to these funding partners for their support of the fund:
Initially created to raise and distribute pandemic-response funds to grassroots organizations, the Another World is Possible Fund quickly adapted to become a fund that supports both short-term rapid response AND long-term resilience for organizations affiliated with Chinook Fund and TLC.
In our 3-year trajectory, we created an AWIP Fund grantmaking committee with community leadership from both Chinook Fund and TLC. We offer gratitude to our leaders:
In 2022, we held a retreat with our partners from the Wealth Reclamation Academy of Practitioners (WRAP) to explore transforming and healing our relationship to money and wealth. Our time with WRAP also helped us to further reimagine ways to embed our grantmaking and resource mobilization practices with anti-oppressive, decolonial, liberatory and re-indigenizing frameworks.
