Our Identity Statement

Grassroots Grantmakers is a national membership organization comprised of place-based funders, advocacy organizations and community organizers that values and leverages resident and civic engagement as a catalyst for creating and driving sustainable community improvement strategies.

We believe that effective community investment strategies – public, private, or philanthropic – must include residents to leverage community assets and resources needed to transform vulnerable communities and address social, racial, and economic justice issues that stifle positive place-based change efforts.

Grassroots Grantmakers provides education and engagement opportunities for its members to improve and maximize community investment strategies while also developing and promoting effective grassroots leadership and organizing strategies. Together, by leveraging community investments and resident leadership, Grassroots Grantmakers believes, together, we will help transform communities while addressing critical issues facing our residents.
