The Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Program offers general or project support to non-profit organizations throughout the U.S. and is Ben and Jerry’s most competitive grant program. While the program’s broad goals are to further social and environmental justice and support sustainable and just food systems, it focuses on the types of activities and strategies an organization uses for creating social change rather than on the specific issues the organization is addressing. The foundation makes one-year grants for up to $25,000, to organizations with budgets under $500,000. Only organizations with 501(c) 3 status, or who have a fiscal agent with this status are eligible to apply.
