NoVo Foundation Supports Organizations that Center Arts at the Intersection of Social Justice
Arts are centered in the Radical Hope Fund, NoVo Foundation's new fund focused on social justice. The NoVo Foundation announced recently $34 million in grants to 19 organizations doing transformative social justice work in the United States and around the world.
Launched in July 2017, the Radical Hope Fund's grants are the culmination of year-long, global call for bold social justice partnerships centered on investments in radical, community-led, innovative solutions.
“We launched the Radical Hope Fund as a radical experiment—can a time of increasing repression and darkness also serve as a springboard for deep collaboration and transformative change?” said Jennifer and Peter Buffett, NoVo’s co-presidents. “The answer has been overwhelming: feminist grassroots advocacy, activism, and organizing are thriving across the globe, new partnerships are growing, and justice leaders everywhere are planting the seeds for a radical new world based in equity, possibility, power, and dignity for all.”
The result is a diverse array of grants to organizations driving systemic social change in communities around the world including Gen Z and Millennial Latinx feminist organizers in Texas combining protest with performance and an international network devoted to eliminating the root cause of violence against girls and women, as the foundation pointed out in a press release.
