Dear Shambhala Community –
As we announced on June 9, 2020, we are inviting individuals and groups within Shambhala to apply for a second round of Community Grants that will focus specifically on initiatives related to dismantling all forms of systemic discrimination and oppression within our community. We welcome proposals that collaborate with groups or individuals outside of Shambhala who are working in areas such as: racism and racial injustice, gender bias, supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, socioeconomic inequality, education and awareness around whiteness and white fragility, and more. These grants are available to individuals and groups working on projects sponsored by Shambhala Centres, Groups, and other nonprofit organizations.
After the projects are chosen, we will announce the initiatives to the community and continue to follow their progress.
To present an initiative and ask for funds, please use the online form by clicking here. You can add more materials to support the application if you wish.
If you intend to apply for a grant, please submit your application no later than August 31, 2020. It is helpful to let us know in advance that you intend to apply and are working to complete the grant at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also send any questions you may have to this address.
The Shambhala Board
