Our movement partners take on big corporations to keep their communities safe from environmental hazards. They build women-owned cooperatives that hold millions of dollars in assets. They save local seeds and fight to preserve indigenous farming practices that sustain people and the land.
These movement support organizations are visionaries, exchanging grassroots brilliance in their neighborhoods and nations, and sharing solutions that are innovative and impactful. Our partners are part of powerful ecosystems of progressive social movements around the world.
They do all the work. We provide the funding. Together, we have a commitment to mutual trust, reciprocal learning, and deep partnership.
Thousand Currents finds its partners through research, referrals, and site visits. We conduct due diligence to select partners that are accountable, financially sound, and transparent.
Once we agree to enter into a partnership with a group, we provide flexible, unrestricted, long-term support.
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 $10,000 of unrestricted funding for a period lasting six to 12 months. The first 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.
There are a thousand ways to support our work.
