Welcome!  Our 2024 application window is now open.

We thank you for your interest in the JustPax Fund. We encourage all potential applicants to read the JustPax Fund’s Vision, Guidelines, and prior years’ funded projects before proceeding with the application below. 

The following additional details apply to the 2024 application round:

  • 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. Your budget should clearly align with accomplishing the work plan and objectives outlined in your application narrative.
  • Total Available Funding: In 2024, we anticipate awarding a total of up to $500,000 across all JustPax Fund projects.
  • Award Notifications and Reporting Requirements. 2024 applicants will be notified of the status of their applications by November 15, 2024. Chosen applicants will receive disbursed grant funds by December 31, 2024. 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, 2024, 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 2025 application cycle.

Proposed Project

Justice Areas*
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. This should be a high level summary and be appropriate for sharing with the public should your application be selected for funding.
Please describe the need that your proposed project will address and your strategy for addressing the injustice. Please review the JustPax Fund Application Guidelines regarding our Funding Priorities and Strategic Approaches, and speak to why your organization and approach are well suited for accomplishing your proposed tasks. In what ways were diverse voices included during your project's planning and implementation?
Please describe the goals and objectives your proposed initiative intends to accomplish. These may be quantitative and/or qualitative, but they should be clearly defined. How will your project's impact ripple beyond your organization or extend beyond the grant period?

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 for Z years" format.
The JustPax Fund has traditionally awarded single-year grants, up to $25,000 per organization. We will also consider 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. If you are requesting a multi-year commitment, please describe what you believe this 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. Applications with incomplete or unclear budgets will not be considered for funding.
Accepted file types: pdf, Max. file size: 512 MB.
Required Grant Report*
All applicants who receive JustPax Funding are required to complete annual reports outlining the successes, challenges, and lessons learned from their project. All JustPax Fund applicants with a current JustPax Fund award must also submit a Mid Year Report updating us on the status of their existing grant, prior to applying for additional funding. Please check that you understand this requirement and will complete the report when requested.

Letters of Support

Please upload at least two letters of support from partner organizations. These letters should speak to the justice need you will address, to your organization's capacity in accomplishing its proposed impacts, and to the ways in which you are collaborating with community partners.
