The National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) named Groundswell Fund and three other grantmakers — Foundation for Louisiana, Solutions Project and Meyer — as recipients of the 2017 Impact Awards for efforts to fight against injustice, inequities and hate in our communities.
Groundswell Fund received the ‘Smashing Silos’ Impact Award for their philanthropic leadership in reproductive justice and intersectional approach to supporting women of color, low-income women and LGBT people as grassroots activists.
Here is LGBTQ Weekly's coverage of NCRP's awards ceremony in Louisiana:
“We dedicate this award to our grantees who transgress issue silos every day, the radical queers in Arizona working for health care and immigrant rights, the Black women in Pittsburgh fighting for environmental justice and abortion care, the Native women on the reservation demanding contraception access and birthing justice,” said Groundswell Fund’s executive director, Vanessa Daniel.
