Presenting Our Grant Recipients!
Finally, the wait is over and we can officially announce our 2021-2022 Grant Recipients!
After several months and an exhaustive review process, the Effing Foundation Board of Directors chose ten projects to receive $5,000 grants to support their sex-positive artistic and educational work. The selection process was difficult because our overall pool of applicants represented some of the finest work in the sex-positive world at the moment. To everyone that applied: thank you for your time, energy, and labor.
Now, presenting our newest grant recipients!

Just Healing - The HEAL Project
Our friends at The HEAL Project do powerful work centered in healing and sexual trauma. In May 2022, HEAL will be offering Just Healing 101, a comprehensive training based on the Rivera - Azad Sexual Healing Integration Model (RASHIM). Developed by Ignacio Rivera and Aredvi Azad, Just healing is guided training that will encourage participants to heal the wounds of sexual violence and create a new framework for navigating the world of sex and relationships. We encourage members of our community to utilize this important resource. Applications are due on April 14th.
Thank you to all of our benefactors for your generous donations which allow Effing to continue our mission of reducing the stigma and shame associated with sex. Your contributions made this grant cycle possible, and for that we are profoundly grateful.
If you’re moved by the work of Effing and our grant recipients, please consider donating. Learn more about contributing by visiting our donation page. As always, thank you for your support.
