GRANTMAKING

ARC Toward Justice

The Arc Toward Justice Fund focuses on long-term efforts to foster racial equity for youth and young adults of color in Oakland. Because Akonadi Foundation recently expanded our grantee cohort, at the moment we are not accepting new applications for 2018.

Beloved Community Fund

The Beloved Community Fund supports free public art and cultural events that celebrate and are rooted in Oakland’s communities of color, and that advance racial justice. Applications may be submitted online at any time; check here for dates proposals are due.

So Love Can Win Community Response Fund

We offer one-time grants ranging from $3,000 to $5,000 to spark imagination and seed efforts to create healing and safety in Oakland’s communities of color. The So Love Can Win Community Response Fund is not currently accepting applications; it will relaunch in mid-2018.

Racial Justice Poster Project

Each year, Akonadi Foundation commissions an artist to create a poster to reflect a vision of a racially just world. Through this Poster Project, we hope to honor and inspire racial justice movement building in Oakland and around the world. 2018 will mark the ten year anniversary of the Racial Justice Poster Project, building on the legacy of political posters as an integral part of social movements.
