Purpose

Community Learning Grants provide core support (or general operating support) funding for community-based organizations in Washington working to improve health equity by dismantling systemic barriers and fostering community well-being.

Priorities include:

  • Organizations and fiscally-sponsored projects that may be smaller or newer, and that have less access to philanthropy and major donors
  • Organizations founded, led, and governed by people who reflect their communities
  • Organizations that represent a place- and/or identity-based community who is most adversely impacted by health inequities such as:
    • Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color
    • Queer, transgender, and gender-nonconforming people
    • People with disabilities
    • Immigrants and refugees
    • People living with low incomes
    • People who identify with more than one condition above
    • Places may include tribal lands, small or medium-sized cities, unincorporated areas, and communities in rural settings
  • Community-powered work with a vision of health equity
  • Organizations working to change current structures that uphold the status quo of who has access to social, political, and economic power
