Goal of Monthly Donors
Many individuals find that their ability to participate in the zero waste movement is limited by a lack of financial resources, an obstacle that is embedded in structural and institutional inequalities across race, class, ability, and gender. Our Movement Building Fund creates a pathway into the Zero Waste movement and addresses some of these financial barriers; it provides things like travel stipends to our annual conference, free advising resources to campus groups with limited funding, and health insurance stipends to our staff. As we grow, we aim to directly support people who have been historically marginalized and we will accomplish this by dedicating a portion of the Movement Building Fund’s resources to folx who have been most impacted by systemic oppression.
