Prospective Grantees

Surdna Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations in the priority areas of Inclusive Economies, Sustainable Environments, and Thriving Cultures. The vast majority of our grants are identified by the foundation with the aim of advancing racial justice.

We recognize the many needs and demands COVID-19 and the national social uprising against racism present for nonprofits and communities. We also acknowledge that we have limited resources, nonprofits have limited time, and that very few unsolicited funding inquiries at our foundation have historically led to a grant.

Given these realities, we are not accepting unsolicited letters of inquiry until further notice. 

Please check back here or sign up for updates about letter of inquiry opportunities as they open.
