Featuring Progressive Multiplier Grantee Partners


Tareq Alani, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer of PushBlack,

Erica Smiley, Executive Director of Jobs With Justice, and

Gustavo Torres, Executive Director of CASA


These organizations are working on the front lines of the most critical issues of our lifetime and we are honored to partner with them to ensure they are resourced for not just today, but the long road ahead towards realizing democracy, justice and equity in our country. We hope you will join us for this important conversation about what it will take to raise grassroots revenue to the scale to reach the impact we need.



The Progressive Stimulus Fund, a project of over 12 foundations was launched in June of 2020 to support grassroots groups’ fundraising and revenue generation in response to challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recession. Lifting up BIPOC-led and BIPOC-serving organizations and examining biases within its grantmaking processes are the first of what will be many steps towards creating equity.
