In 2020, Stop the Money Pipeline regranted $50,000 to frontline and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color-led (BIPOC-led) organizations. In 2021, we regranted $85,000 to BIPOC-led and frontline-led organizations working with us to stop the money pipeline or to stop extractive, exploitative, and environmentally racist projects in their own communities. The fund was created to support frontline and BIPOC-led groups for:

  • participating in the Stop the Money Pipeline coalition and defund work
  • participating in longer-term campaigning against Stop the Money Pipeline targets, financial institutions, and other targets financing systems of oppression
  • community care, just transition and organizational support.

Below are the 16 grantees of our BIPOC fund for 2021:
