Contribute to the Celebrate Grassroots Organizing Fund!

The Celebrate Grassroots Organizing Fund launches in honor of the 10th anniversary of our annual Celebration of Grassroots Organizing, which has built on working partnerships between grassroots groups to develop a trust-based model for collaborative fundraising.

Coming up on June 3, 2023 at First Parish Dorchester, the Celebration is an expression of increased impact through collaborative fundraising. 15 partner organizations work together on the frontlines of movements for justice and liberation in Boston and collaboratively plan the Celebration as a chance to uplift this collective work.

The fund uplifts the values of interdependence, abundance, and sustainability, shifting power to the grassroots community leaders who are tirelessly building toward a vision of beloved community.

You can contribute through an event sponsorship, an individual donation, or a ticket purchase (to be announced soon!)

You can also contribute by check! Checks can be made out to Resist, Inc (with “Celebrate” in the memo line) and mailed to Resist, PO Box 301240, Boston, MA 02130

Or, become a Seed Sustainer!

If we’re gonna win the world we imagine, we need to scale up and shift the way we fund social justice work. Resource Organizing Project builds the relationships, capacity, and vision needed to grow movements for liberation in New England. We partner with grassroots movement organizations to fundraise collaboratively, create opportunities for community building, strengthen sustainable fundraising practices, organize movement donors, and move resources into movement work - check out our last report and giving guide for more info on our work and partnerships.

Sustainer programs are some of the strongest tools to increase a small organization’s resources, independence and sustainability. “Seed Sustainers,” or community members making a monthly donation of any dollar amount to ROP, are an integral piece of ROP’s community and receive opportunities to deepen their donor activism, including:

  • Annual zoom gatherings for updates on ROP partners’ work
  • Special access to ROP events
  • Giving plan workshops
  • Updates on key opportunities to support New England movement groups

Last year, you got us to 100 Seed Sustainers!

In the last month of March, we’re working to recruit 50 more and unlock a $5,000 matching gift. We’ll celebrate with a Seed Sustainer Thank You Party happening virtually on Thursday, March 30, at 5:30 PM. Register here.
