The Queer Mobilization Fund is excited to offer a cohort experience to our grant recipients as part of our grant awards to help build organizational capacity and the movement!
The group of organizations that are awarded QMF grants each calendar year are considered a “cohort”. The cohort allows Grantees to meet, collaborate, and build relationships through networking and training opportunities. In addition, each participant receives support in building their individual organizational capacity through a technical assistance program designed to cater to each groups specific needs and context. See more about technical assistance opportunities HERE.
Each grant cycle, QMF hosts two interactive Zoom calls to open and close the grant cycle and also provide important information. QMF also hosts an annual virtual convening for grantees to connect, network, skillshare and attend trainings. Other events are TBD and we try to give as much notice as possible for upcoming events!
As a program of Southern Vision Alliance (SVA), all grantees are welcome to attend the SVA All Members Gathering. This is an in-person event hosted in Durham, NC by SVA and gathers the entire SVA ecosystem to build and grow together. Typically funds are available to cover travel and lodging expenses for grantees. It’s a really fun way to meet some of the grantees in person!
Applicants interested in actively participating in the cohort and technical assistance are prioritized in our grantmaking decisions.
