For those of us who are lucky enough to be financially stable right now, this is an opportunity to redistribute our own wealth and assets to ensure that we all have enough to make it through this collective crisis.

100% of funds received by NEC via the #ShareMyCheck campaign will be redistributed through our Movement Support Fund, providing unrestricted rapid response grants to frontline groups who are providing the blueprint for what comes next.

This Fund is driven by the knowledge that the youth and grassroots organizations most impacted by the dominant, extractive economy are leading the most innovative, creative work capable of transforming this system. Unfortunately, these vital projects are first to lose funding in moments like this. 100% of your donation will support rapid relief grants to grassroots groups working on long-term systems change.

Within this moment we see an unprecedented opportunity to live up to our collective potential. What happens next will define our future for generations to come. But we must act now. For this reason, NEC is committed to moving more money to grassroots groups this year than in any other year of the fund – with your help.

We invite you to #ShareMyCheck to support NEC’s Movement Support Fund.
