Resource Summary

The Story of Stuff Project established the Grassroots Grants Program in 2017 to support small organizations and groups organizing against water privatization and plastic pollution in the United States. Since it was launched, it has supported 70 grassroots groups with over $200,000 in funding. In 2022, the goal is to award $100,000.

The Story of Stuff Project offers these partners financial resources, media infrastructure, and strategic planning and coalition building know-how needed to build winning campaigns. The Grassroots Grants Program is committed to equity and inclusion and prioritizes the funding of people of color, low-income, rural and women-led organizations.

The Story of Stuff Project support projects that value local community involvement and organizing, creative interventions, strategic thinking, and both defensive “fight-back” and offensive solutions-focused projects.
