Our 2023 application window is now open.

We thank you for your interest, and we encourage all interested applicants to read the JustPax Fund’s Vision and to review prior years’ funded projects. Additionally, we strongly encourage you to review the following information before completing your application:

  • Application Guidelines: All application guidelines must be followed for grants to be considered for funding.
  • Award Amounts: The JustPax Fund has traditionally awarded grants of up to $25,000/year for gender, environmental, and economic justice projects. We occasionally increase this cap for exceptional projects.
  • Single and Multi-Year Projects: Awards are generally given for a single year of funding. If your proposed project has already completed significant preparatory planning and is seeking to launch a considered initiative with multi-year impact and you believe that a multi-year funding commitment is necessary for the success of your project, you may apply for up to three years of funding in a single application.
  • Grant Application Budgets: Please download and review our Budget Template for inclusion in your application. Although you may modify this template to fit your project, significant departures that capture less information than the template requests will not be supported for funding.
  • Total Available Funding: In 2023, we anticipate awarding a total of up to $400,000 across all JustPax Fund projects.
  • Award Notifications and Reporting Requirements. 2023 applicants will be notified of the status of their applications by November 1, 2023. Chosen applicants will receive disbursed grant funds by December 31, 2023. All funded applicants must submit a report on the outcomes of their projects one year after funding is completed.
  • DEADLINE:  All applications must be submitted by August 1, 2023, 5pm Eastern Time (ET).  After that time, the application portal will close and you will not be eligible to submit further funding requests until the 2024 application cycle.


2023 Application

  • Proposed Project

  • Which of the following does your application seek to advance? Please check all that apply.
  • Please describe the project for which you are seeking funding. What is the scope of work you are undertaking, and in what ways will your efforts result in greater gender, environmental, and economic justice? Why is your organization uniquely suited to this effort?
  • Please briefly list, in numbered form, the key objectives you hope to achieve with this project. If you are applying for multiple years of funding, please list objectives for each year of requested funding.
  • Our funding priorities state: "Beyond addressing the effects of economic, environmental, and gender injustice, qualifying activities create innovative and replicable initiatives that transform paradigms of oppression. These initiatives provide real-world examples of non-extractive economic activity, environmental systems that harmonize human and non-human activities, and social systems of respect and just governance." In what ways does your proposal invert systems of oppression and/or create alternative systems build on real justice?
  • Proposals are encouraged to reflect the importance of interdisciplinary engagement. Please outline the ways in which diverse voices will be identified and included during project implementation.
  • What are the projected impacts of this project? In what ways will that impact be felt beyond the proposed year of funding? How does this project advance a long-term vision?
  • In what ways do the past activities, partnerships, and work of the applicant demonstrate a long-term commitment to engage in this justice area? In what ways does the proposal make efficient use of the requested funds for strategic impact today?
  • Funding Request

  • Single year projects: please write the total dollar amount you are requesting. Multi-year projects: Please list your request in a "$X/year" format.
  • The JustPax Fund has traditionally awarded single-year grants, up to $20,000 per organization. For this funding year, we are open to considering applications for multi-year commitments, provided the applicant can clearly demonstrate how a multi-year commitment enables them to pursue a scale of transformation and impact that is not feasible in a single year. Please use the space below to note whether you are pursuing a traditional single-year grant application or a multi-year commitment. If a multi-year commitment, please describe what you believe this structure of support will enable you to accomplish that is not feasible in a single-year format.
  • Please upload a pdf document showing how the requested funds will be spent. Please also include a description of any other revenue streams (grants, donations, etc) associated with your project and a notation as to whether these funds have been fully secured. We highly recommend downloading our Budget Templates linked at the top of this page when formatting your Project Budget request.
    Accepted file types: pdf, Max. file size: 512 MB.
  • All applicants who receive JustPax Funding will be required to complete a written report at the conclusion of their first year, outlining the successes, challenges, and lessons learned from their project. Please check that you understand this requirement and consent to complete the report when requested.
