The Response and Vision Fund Announces New Grantees

The Response and Vision Fund – an initiative of the FORGE collaborative – has announced a new slate of grantees, aimed at helping workers and communities ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic.

FORGE is a collaborative of philanthropic donors, working together towards a global economy that works for all people and the planet, shaped by and accountable to worker- and community-led movements. The Response and Vision Fund, which launched last year, supports community and civil society organizations, workers’ rights groups and social movements that work with those most impacted by the economic fallout of Covid-19, while advancing systemic change to shift the economy in a more just and sustainable direction. Humanity United is a founding member of both.

The first cohort of grantees included eight organizations that focused their efforts on building worker power, strengthening accountability and shaping recovery initiatives.

The seven newly-announced grantees will build on and complement the efforts of the first slate, and support the development of a new economic model that works for the people and the planet, focusing on climate, gender, and debt justice.

The newest grantees are:

The Response and Vision Fund was launched by the Ford Foundation, Fundación Avina, Humanity United, Laudes Foundation, Omidyar Network, Open Society Foundations, SAGE Fund, True Costs Initiative, Wellspring Philanthropic Fund, and Wallace Global Fund.
