BIG We Foundation $30,000 Grant Program

Dollar Amount: $30,000
Deadline: September 14, 2023
Sponsor: Big We Foundation (BWF)
Award Type: Grant Money
Posted By: Reginald Culpepper on 08/15/2023

Nonprofit arts and cultural intermediary Big We Foundation (BWF) launched a grant program in early 2023 with an inaugural cohort of four grantees to assist Black and Indigenous womxn creating projects rooted in lasting and meaningful change through storytelling, and they’re doing it again. SheStories is an innovative program that has received funding from Pivotal Ventures, a Melinda French Gates company. The SheStories grant is open to talented Black, Indigenous, Latina/e, Asian American and Pacific Islanders, multiracial and femme-identifying womxn storytellers with passion, vision and a desire to elevate their voices and change the world. BWF is currently accepting applications for the second group of four storytellers to each receive a $30,000 grant.

A panel of community members will select the grant awardee s based on the following criteria: personal exploration, unheard stories and a clear call to action. SheStories storytellers are encouraged to cultivate deep personal exploration and express love for themselves, their work and their lives while being candid about the challenges, pitfalls and hardships they face in their communities and the world. BWF will announce grant recipients one month after submissions close. The completion of SheStories projects will be expected within one year before public release on the BWF website.

For more information and to apply for the 2023 SheStories grants, visit the grant's web site. Submissions for this round will be accepted until Sept. 14, 2023. The third and final round of grants will open next summer.
