Wayfinder Foundation was founded to make direct investments in women who lead, both within their own families and their broader communities. We are excited to support these activists by providing them with real resources, which are so often lacking in the communities that most need them.

Our Community Activist Fellowship Program will begin accepting Letters of Interest from community activists in Washington D.C., Memphis, Tennessee, and Oakland, California. This program is designed for women who are making a difference in their communities, but who don’t have access to the resources needed to take their work to the next level. The needs of children, families, and communities are urgent. Who better to meet those needs than the women who best understand the challenges?

Letters of Interest are due 11:59 pm EST on June 29, 2018. 

We will be hosting an information webinar on June 13, 2018 at 2pm EST for potential applicants who have questions and/or want to learn more about the application process. Webinar registration is available here.

Those who are selected to participate in the Community Activist Fellowship program will receive funding, training, and the opportunity to develop their voices as spokespeople for the issues that affect our communities. After all, who can speak more directly about the power within a community than those directly impacted by the issues themselves? It’s time to have a platform where they can share their truths.

We invite you to join us in this work by applying for a fellowship. Here's more information:
