Expensify announced it is looking to award $100,000 in matching funds to ten grassroots movements that help create a “fairer, more inclusive, and just world.”
Submissions are welcome through April 30, 2021. Expensify asks that submissions focus on one or more of the following five areas: climate, housing, hunger, reentry, and youth. Ten winners will be awarded matching funds, with five winners receiving a minimum of $25,000, four with $50,000, and one receiving at least $100,000.
“There are incredible people that are out in their communities every day, spending their own time and money, organizing to fight injustice,” said Puneet Lath, director at Expensify, in a statement. “Expensify.org wants to partner with groups that have a high potential impact on complex social problems resulting from systemic injustice, then provide resources to help them attract more volunteers to further their causes.”
Campaign proposals will be voted on by Expensify.org donors. Voting will close on June 1, with two winning proposals announced in each of the five funds.
