Supporting innovative, regenerative and enduring solutions to global problems that will uplift communities and empower individuals by making grants and providing technical assistance.
At Pennywise, we recognize that support comes in many forms and offer a variety of services for our grantees and project partners.
- Grants - We make grants to small, grassroots organizations that implement innovative strategies that reduce costs and waste, break destructive cycles, demonstrate tangible impact, and are sustainable in the long term.
- Collaborative Support- We engage in collective impact initiatives by identifying opportunities for collaboration and offering the technical assistance to make strategic partnerships function effectively.
- Urgent Response Fund- We reserve funds to respond at moments of geo-political crises. We move these resources quickly, addressing specific needs and bridging gaps until larger scale aid can be secured.
- VoteWise- Understanding that access to free and fair democratic processes underpins progress on nearly every issue, we support community based initiatives that are effectively promoting voting rights in marginalized communities.
