As a rape survivor, our founder Janet Jensen discovered that local organizations are doing the hard work to help survivors of sexual violence, but face similar obstacles.
Funding is just a fraction of their needs. Organizations need to know what works and doesn’t. They need the opportunity to expand their leadership skills and find a network of like-minded professionals to get support with staffing, cash flow, fundraising, operations, day-to-day questions, and more.
They need resources and a strategic partner to support them in their work.
The Jensen Project fills this need. We believe we’re stronger together. A national, unified front will help us win the fight against sexual violence.
The Jensen Project announces GrantTank, a yearly grant program, funding millions to advance economic empowerment and housing opportunities for agencies who serve adult female survivors of human trafficking.
The Jensen Project partners with 35 agencies, with 20 of these agencies benefiting from the LIFT program. GrantTank 2021 grants $4,689,000 in cash funding and 832 hours of leadership training.
GrantTank 2022 grants over $4 Million in cash funding to 10 organizations for housing and economic empowerment.
