We’re excited to announce the first of our 2019 NCRP Impact Awardees:

Join us in congratulating

  • Emergent Fund
    The “Get Up, Stand Up” Award for Bold Rapid Response.
    This rapid response fund created following the November 2016 presidential election is being honored for its open, steamlined grant applicalation and participatory, activist-driven decision-making process. The NCRP Impact Awards Selection Committee was impressed by the unique nature of the collaborative that created Emergent Fund and how the fund is supporting grantees that other funders hesitate to support due to misconceptions about risk. 

Spread the inspiration!
