During the 2018 Fiscal Year, Grassroots International expanded its assistance to crucial frontline movements, delivering $4.14M in direct support — an increase of 45% from the year before, and the greatest amount of grants Grassroots has ever mobilized in a single year. Each programmatic area increased, as well as expansion in two strategic program areas: environmental justice organizing and grassroots feminist movements globally.
Grassroots’ ability to sustain and grow its programs relies on the generosity and commitment of its supporters. In 2018, that support increased by 74% over the previous year. The growth in revenue allowed Grassroots to boost the proportion of its spending for grants, education, and program activities to 83%. With the dynamic participation of its funding partners, Grassroots will remain an outspoken advocate for the human rights to land, water and food.
