Abelard Foundation - East
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations in states east of the Mississippi River for social change initiatives. Funding is intended to promote community involvement in civil and human rights issues. Program goals should be to affect local, state, regional, or national level change. Most grants are for general support.
Abelard East is committed to supporting local progressive social change activities that expand and protect civil liberties and civil and human rights, and promote and strengthen community involvement in, and control over, the decisions that affect their lives. The Foundation does not focus on any issues in particular, e.g. housing, health, the environment, or education, etc. Grantees are involved in a broad range of issues which involve the question of civil and human rights.
The constituents of Abelard East’s grantees are poor and low-income people seeking to affirm their civil or human rights. These include, among others, the disenfranchised, immigrants, workers, people of color, the disabled, etc.
