Prospective Grantees

Three Programs. One Goal: Racial Justice.

Surdna Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations in three priority areas: Inclusive EconomiesSustainable Environments, and Thriving Cultures.

Our staff build long-term relationships with people, organizations, communities, and movements working toward racial justice in the United States, which can lead to an invitation to apply for a grant.

We recognize that we have limited resources, nonprofits have limited time, and few unsolicited letters of inquiry have historically led to a grant. Given these realities, we do not accept unsolicited letters of inquiry.

From time to time, we issue requests for proposals for special initiatives. Please sign up for updates about opportunities as they open.
