A partner in the fight against sexual violence

Our GrantTank program seeks to strategically partner with organizations that work with trafficking survivors.

These organizations have proven strength and leadership in this field and require financial support to either expand or elevate their work.

The selected areas of focus for 2023 GrantTank Awards are housing, technology, and policy.

Applications are no longer being accepted as of September 1, 2023.

Policy GrantTank recipients will be announced September 29, 2023.

Grants range from $100,000 to $500,000, depending on the need expressed and the individual grant extended.
