Our Work

Making Grants

Voqal grantmaking is a philanthropic program that promotes social equity in creative and disruptive ways. We have a deep commitment to racial and social justice. We invest in leaders, organizations, and movements who are closest to injustice and are fighting for collective liberation.

We are committed to the promotion of social, economic, and racial justice through the support of community organizing and public policy advocacy. We carry out our work in a way that builds the capacity of communities to win political power and we prioritize funding communities who have traditionally had power used against them.
