$70,000 awarded to support Transformative Responses to COVID-19

People everywhere are responding to the ways in which injustice, inequity, and unsustainability are being amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic. These efforts remind us that global crises have the potential to set the stage for unprecedented social change.
 
With this in mind, SHIFT launched a temporary funding program to support tranformative responses to the current moment. Between April and June 2020, we distributed $70,000 to 15 local initiatives that are driven by the needs of the community and have potential for social transformation, now or in the post-crisis context

Recognizing the inherent complexity of working across differences in power and practices to tackle major societal challenges, we strive to create the conditions for success by:

Facilitating connections between Concordians and external stakeholders;

Funding and accompanying multi-stakeholder collaborations;

Creating opportunities for deep knowledge sharing; and

Hosting a dynamic and welcoming work space
