The Voqal Fund is dedicated to supporting the dissemination of alternative ideas and building a more engaged public to effect progressive social change and disrupt the status quo.
Through our various grant-making and fellowship initiatives, we support nonprofit organizations and individuals using media and technology to empower those who are politically, economically or socially disenfranchised.

Voqal accepts grant applications by invitation only and occasionally will issue a call for proposals or fellowship nominations and applications. Voqal identifies prospective grantees through grant-maker networks, connecting with experts on priority issue areas, research and the knowledge and expertise of its board members. Because of the volume of inquiries we receive and the limited resources of our team, we cannot accept unsolicited proposals. We screen all prospective partners for alignment with Voqal’s mission, values and philanthropic priorities. If we see a fit, we will invite an online proposal including organizational mission and/or scope of the project, goals and objectives, anticipated outcomes and budget. Voqal rarely makes multi-year grant commitments, but may invite grantees to apply for renewed funding. Voqal encourages its grantees to strive for diversified funding and sustainability, thereby allowing us to explore and nurture new endeavors.
