The Emergent Fund is a partnership between Solidaire Network, Women Donors Network, Threshold Foundation, and the Democracy Alliance. It is designed to help donors strategically support rapid-response, grassroots organizing and power building in communities that were and continue to be under attack by federal policies and priorities, including: immigrants, women, Muslim and Arab-American communities, Black people, LGBTQ communities, and all people of color. The fund is governed by an Advisory Council made up of leaders who represent communities who the fund is designed to serve. In 2017, the fund’s Advisory Council approved $1.1 million in grants and will continue to make grants to the field on a rolling basis throughout 2018.
