Action Fund for the NEYON community

The NEYON Fund is open to all NEYON organizations to access up to  $2,000 for any organizational needs, including but not limited to program opportunities, capacity building, training, collaborations and supplies. Please be advised that our NEYON Fund is almost out for 2024.  Apply immediately to inquire!

Organizations have previously used the NEYON fund to support to attending train-the-trainer workshops, storytelling trainings and other related organizing trainings.  They’ve also been implemented for working artist fellowships, emergency funds for actions and stipends for short-term campaigns, food, travel and program supplies.
