Akonadi Foundation has a 20-year history of providing grant funds to racial justice organizations in times of political unrest, economic fragility, and community crisis. The Foundation’s So Love Can Win Fund originally launched in 2016 in response to critical national and local events that challenged a sense of safety for communities of color, with the intention to spark imagination and seed a vision of a safe, healed, and racially just Oakland.
The So Love Can Win Fund provides grants to organizations, initiatives and projects in Oakland that have a focus in one of the following strategies:
Base-building organizations that mobilize, support, develop, and build power with their members.
Arts & Culture
Cultural formations that use culture as a tool for racial justice movement building.
Healing justice collectives and organizations providing accessible and relevant healing, wellness and self-care practices using an anti-racist political frame.
Oakland-focused journalism or narrative efforts that highlight racial justice movement building and/or issues impacting Black, Indigenous or people of color communities with an emphasis on promoting community leadership, mutual aid, and cultural resilience.
THIS FUND IS NOW CLOSED. Please check back in early 2022 for updates on the fund.
