Unfortunately, at the time we are unable to accept submissions from individuals or groups located entirely outside the United States. Aside from that: anyone is welcome to apply, regardless of identity or background. The Effing Foundation focuses on supporting #ownvoices: that is, people who are members of disadvantaged groups doing projects grounded in their experiences. In particular, we are looking to fund projects by people with one or more marginalized identities, including women (cisgender and transgender), people who are members of gender/(a)sexuality/relationship minorities, people of color, people of size, neurodiverse people, and/or people with disabilities (mental illness, chronic illness, and/or other physical disabilities).
We have published a table of our grant funding demographics, which includes data from our past funding cycles and our goals for the current cycle.
