The Southern Vision Alliance directs resources to non-traditional groups, planning processes, and organizing experiments through:
*short-term fiscal sponsorship for events, campaigns, and convenings
* re-granting modest funds to group-centered projects designed by directly-impacted communities
SVA is committed to resourcing innovative, bold grassroots efforts led by directly impacted communities across the U.S. South. SVA’s mini-grants program helps groups scale-up efforts, identify best practices, and deepen a diverse bench of leaders.
The current political climate demands that our movements be nimble, strategic and visionary. SVA mini-grants respond to urgent needs. We prioritize community-centered funding proposals from youth, working class leaders, people of color, queer and trans activists, and groups that are not traditionally funded.
