Our work was generously funded in 2017 through an $877,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Over the course of four years, we used these funds to pay for the salaries of three full-time staff members, three graduate-level research assistants, as well as for stipends and short-term contracts in support of our collaborators. We also used them to pay for a variety of travel costs, professional services, and supply needs across our project. As we engage with our peers and reckon with our project budget as a reflection of our values, we look forward to developing future grant proposals and non-grant-funded programs that bring us closer to our guiding principle of directly resourcing the work of our partners.
