71 grants totalling more than $205,000 awarded for kids of targeted activists

It’s springtime, and that means the RFC has concluded another successful granting period to benefit the children of targeted activists. While we're so glad to see vaccines becoming increasingly available and a slow return to pre-COVID norms across communities, many of our beneficiary families continue to deal with the impact from the crisis. With this in mind, the RFC Board has approved over $205,000 in grant funds this spring (among the largest amounts awarded in a cycle in our 31-year history). Our new Granting Coordinator, Tori Montemurro, wrote a guest blog with more highlights from the RFC’s 2021 spring granting period, including updates on new families, renewal families, activism, and some of our favorite grant activities for kids approved this cycle. You can find Tori’s blog here; we encourage you to give it a read.
