NoVo’s Radical Hope Fund a Result of Radical Listening
NPQ has written in the past about the NoVo Foundation’s constituent-centric approach to funding (here, here, and here.) Over the years, they have lived out their philosophy of being guided by those most affected by the challenges societies face today. NoVo’s mission—to foster transformation from a world of domination and exploitation to one of collaboration and partnership—is common sense for those who are committed to mutuality but rare among foundations. They have asked themselves tough questions, such as, “Can philanthropy support the transformation of society?” Now, they are looking to support transnational movement building with the launch of the Radical Hope Fund.
Radical hope is one of NoVo’s core values. The Radical Hope Fund will award $20 million over four years, and the minimum award amount will be $250,000 for one to four years, reflecting NoVo’s commitment to supporting big ideas. . .
