Community Movement Builders 2.0

In 2020, FAM provided unrestricted funds to community movement builders to support their ongoing efforts to meet the needs of their communities. In 2018, FAM established the Community Movement Builders Fund to support community-based projects that address disparities and inequities in marginalized and vulnerable communities. The objective of the fund is to initiate grassroots, action-based solutions to self-identified challenges through community directed problem solving and leadership development.

2018

In 2018, FAM established the Community Microgrant Fund to support community-based projects that address disparities and inequities in marginalized and vulnerable communities. The objective of the fund is to initiate grassroots, action-based solutions to self-identified challenges through community directed problem solving and leadership development. FAM’s vision of access to respectful and culturally appropriate maternity care from community-based midwives, available to all families and recognized as a human right, is enhanced by the contributions of each of our community microgrant recipients. We honor them for their work. The following six community microgrants were distributed this year. Show them some love and share your well wishes on our Facebook Page.
