Left Tilt Fund Invites Grant Applications for Social Justice Projects


The San Francisco-based Left Tilt Fund is a private nonprofit social justice foundation that funds organizations and artists working to address the root causes of economic, political, and social injustice through community-based organizing, education, legal advocacy, and other innovative means.

The fund is particularly interested in economic equality, civil liberties, prisoners' rights, labor issues, racial justice, homelessness, the environment, the arts, and international work pertaining to Palestine, the Middle East, and Latin America. The fund strives to support a diverse range of social justice organizations, including those that do not receive funds from traditional sources.

The fund is accepting applications for its first grants cycle of 2011. The fund supports nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations with grants up of to $10,000. The fund generally does not support conferences, governmental agencies, or animal welfare organizations. Individuals seeking grants must have an eligible fiscal sponsor.
