SJC Quarterly Activity Fund
The Social Justice Co-operative (SJC) Activity Fund is open to all members, volunteers*, or groups (ex: board, committee, or action team) to apply to use for projects or events.
The purpose of the fund is to increase the impact and reach of SJC via support for member-led activities best fitting within scope of SJC priorities and capabilities, mission and vision.
Activities may include, but are not limited to, printing stickers, posters, or zines, honoraria, food expenses, event bookings or materials, marketing, etc.
Diversity and Inclusion Statement:
The SJC is committed to anti-oppressive practices in all its activities, including the activity fund submissions and committee. We welcome applications from and will give preference to marginalized communities in our consideration of applications. Equity considerations are voluntary, but will only enhance your submission.
We recognize this statement as a small step to direct action against racism, colonization, and exclusion. Transparency is a priority, if you have questions/comments about this statement please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW TO SUBMIT
The SJC Quarterly Activity Fund will be defined as a total pool of up to $500 to be distributed every three months (February, May, August, November).
Applications will be due on the 2nd Thursday of the month (February, May, August, November) at 11:59pm and will be notified within 2 days following the Monthly General Meeting. Applicants can re-apply for additional funding every three months.
Applications will be reviewed by the Activity Fund Selection Committee. All members are welcome to attend these monthly meetings. Information to join these online meetings are available in the SJC Community Calendar. Decisions made by the committee will be reviewed again at the MGM.
Successful applicants will communicate progress during implementation and after completion to the Volunteer Coordinator. The project lead is responsible for attending an MGM or Lunch with Lea afterwards online to share information about their activity and reflect on: What went well? What did not go so well? What could be done better next time?
Projects that require over $500 or funding before the deadline will be considered by the SJC Board on a case-by-case basis.
*Applicants who are not members of the SJC require a member to sponsor the application. If you do not know any members, send us an email at email@example.com and we will help find you a sponsor!
