We are excited to announce the newest grantees from our So Love Can Win Fund!
Akonadi Foundation’s So Love Can Win Fund provides general support grants of $10,000 to Oakland’s Black, Indigenous, or people of color-led groups and organizations who seek to ignite and implement a radical collective vision of freedom and racial justice. The awarded projects use strategies that include local racial justice organizing, art and culture, healing and wellness, and journalism, storytelling, or narrative change.
For our first round this year, we awarded $310,000 to 31 groups. In this round, we awarded $190,000 to 19 groups that are doing innovative work from telling and uplifting the stories of longtime Oakland residents to creating safe spaces for LGBTQI+ Muslims.
