Apply for a Grant

In order to apply for a Resist grant (all applications must be entered online):


Resist’s grant-making panel, made up of grantees across the country, has decided to not accept applications for the August 2020 cycle (with a June deadline). Instead, we will waive reapplications, and automatically renew grants that cycle during the COVID-19 pandemic in line with the funder pledge Resist is currently co-sponsoring.

Please contact Yani ( if you have any questions.


Start the application process for any of our grants here.

  1. You will need to create a user account. You don’t have to submit an application, but in order to browse, read the applications, or submit, you must create an account. It should take less than five minutes. 

  2. You will see information about our five grant programs and instructions on how to apply. 

Please follow instructions online for technical support, and for application support, give us a call at 617.623.5110.

We very much look forward to reading your applications!
