About Catalyst Partners 

After identifying potential prospective groups through research, referrals, and site visits, Thousands Currents begins its relationship with partner organizations through its catalyst grants program. We provide approximately $5,000 of unrestricted funding for a period lasting six to 12 months. The small grant creates an opportunity for Thousand Currents and the catalyst partner to collaborate over a short term to assess the potential for a longer term partnership. After this period, Thousand Currents may invite the Catalyst Partner to engage in a long-term partnership.

Thousand Currents does not accept unsolicited requests for funding or proposals.
