Resist is a foundation that supports people’s movements for justice and liberation. We redistribute resources back to frontline communities at the forefront of change while amplifying their stories of building a better world.


Resist will not hold a November 2023 Grant Cycle.

We are aware this shift may impact grantees who look forward to our end of year cycle and still the RESIST team looks forward to what this means for our grantees in the future.

The remainder of 2023 and 2024 will center on our internal development to increase our grant sizes in a sustainable way. Unlike conventional foundations, RESIST does not have an endowment and that makes it critical for our staff collective to sustain our available resources. We also give full authority of our grant cycle distribution to our Grant Panel, made up of former grantees.
