Who We Are

The Carry on the Fight Fund is a national funder collaborative. Current investors include Omidyar Network, Ford Foundation, and W. K. Kellogg Foundation.

We welcome additional funding partners. For more information on how to join this effort, contact Monisha Som.

To inform the Fund’s understanding of how to be most effective and meet the greatest need, we have engaged leaders in grassroots organizing and movement building as our Movement Oversight Committee to provide strategic insight and ensure our grants support a diverse range of voices. Together, the funders and the chair of the Movement Oversight Committee constitute the Fund’s Grantmaking Advisory Committee.

The Movement Oversight Committee includes individuals who have a strong understanding of economic power analysis and governance work — and/or ties to local elected officials, including:

Sarah Audelo (Chair)

Alliance for Youth Action*
Areas of expertise: Electoral and issue advocacy work

Harmony Goldberg

Grassroots Policy Project

*Affiliations are listed to demonstrate current experience. When acting on behalf of the Carry on the Fight Fund, Movement Oversight Committee members represent their own opinions.
