The Fighter Fund, coined by our co-founder Mark Ruffalo, is designed to make small rapid response grants at key movement moments for communities throughout the United States and Canada – grants averaging $15,000 dollars each.

From supporting indigenous leadership working to block the Dakota Access Pipeline to financing a community solar array in West Virginia’s coal country, the Fighter Fund has invested over $750,000 in grassroots solutions since its launch in 2016.
