Our mission is to reduce sexual shame by fostering sex-positive art and education. The Effing Foundation promotes sexuality education and artistic expression of sexuality by making grants to #ownvoices organizations, groups, and projects that are run by women (cisgender and transgender), people who are members of gender/(a)sexuality/relationship minorities, people of color, people of size, neurodiverse people, and/or people with disabilities (including mental illness, chronic illness, and/or other physical disabilities).
We are currently seeking sex-positive projects (long or short term) for potential grant funding. This questionnaire is the first step of being invited to submit a full grant application.
We are asking people who are interested in applying for an Effing Foundation grant to complete this questionnaire by 11:59pm US Eastern time on Wednesday, July 31, 2019. This will let us know a bit about who you are and what you are interested in doing. You will be notified on or about Monday, August 26, 2018, whether or not you are invited to submit a full grant application.
If this online questionnaire is difficult for you to complete because of its format, please contact us about alternative submission methods (firstname.lastname@example.org). A text-only version of these application forms is available here.
