We encourage candidates who address the root causes of injustice and create spaces for discussing the intersections among different forms of injustice. For this reason, applicants should be working within at least two of our current funding categories (listed below) and may address multiple categories.


1.  Economic Justice
2.  Education Justice
3.  Civil Rights Justice
4.  Gender and Sexuality Justice
5.  Immigrant Justice
6.  Art for Justice

The Fringe accepts applications from regions across the United States. We are particularly interested in supporting projects based in regions that are currently under-funded by existing foundations. 

TFF does not accept unsolicited applications.

Because we are passionate about diverse and open-minded community action, we aim to partner with groups that do NOT have singular religious affiliations.

We are committed to forming alliances with organizations that perceive social justice work as an ongoing struggle pursued by the people most directly affected by injustice, not a single, conclusive campaign organized by advocates.
