We know it is important to support BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ business owners. Prioritizing working with a grant writer who identifies as BIPOC or LBGTQIA+ can be beneficial to your organization; specifically if your organization's mission is to dismantle the systems of oppression for these groups.
Jennifer Dumlao of Viriditas Grants has crowdsourced a list of BIPOC and LGBTQIA-identifying grant writers. Most individuals are geographically located in the Puget Sound region of Washington (Seattle, WA), but many work across the state or elsewhere.
Every organization deserves the perfect grant writer to support their efforts. We are proud to share this resource with our community.
