Spring 2019 Grantees

We are excited to welcome the current cohort of grantee partners into the Pop Culture Collaborative community.  These grantee partners are imagining, creating, and collaborating to change our culture and we are proud to work with them as we seek to build a just and pluralist society. Scroll down and click ‘Read More’ to learn more about each grantee and their funded work.

To support more in-depth connection to the Collaborative community, current grantee partners can be viewed and sorted across five grantmaking categories and by additional strategy tags. Click the boxes below and the strategy tags within each grantee description to see how grantees connect to each other and the pop culture for social change field.

All current and past grantee partners can be also be viewed and sorted by grantee cohort, grantmaking category and strategy tags.  We hope this opportunity makes for a rich discovery experience.
