The Effing Foundation for Sex-Positivity: Inviting applications for ‘Grant Program’ for artists and educators whose work centers on human sexuality, finding financial support can be extremely difficult.

Funding brief: Grant Program For artists and educators whose work centers on human sexuality, finding financial support can be extremely difficult. The Effing Foundation runs a grant program to help meet this need.

Projects criteria: The Effing Foundation promotes sexuality education and artistic expression of sexuality, which can include many different types of projects. This can be an organization which does ongoing, sex-positive work, or it can be an individual or group of individuals doing a specific event or project.

You could propose to host a conference, workshop, or other type of event; write or edit a book (fiction/non-fiction/comics/poetry/collection/zine/…); put on a play or storytelling event; make a film or short video series; do a photo shoot; create a podcast or vlog; make a game (videogame/boardgame/RPG/LARP); build an art installation; or create a website; to name just a few ideas.

The exact medium you use is less important to us than that your project is 1) artistic and/or educational in some way; 2) grounded in your own identity and experiences; and 3) sex-positive (and that your sex-positivity includes being respectful of people with marginalized identities).

Donor Name: The Effing Foundation for Sex-Positivity

Funding limit: The  round of pilot grants was for eight $5,000 grants ($40,000 in grant money total), so requesting $5,000 or less for one project or organization is encouraged. They don’t have a large pile of money to give away: whatever grants are approved by our Board, they will have to raise that money before we can give it to our grantees. If you are an artist or educator who already has a large audience and/or you’ve run successful crowdfunding campaigns in the past, we can talk with you about requesting amounts larger than $5,000.

Special Notes: Please contact with the donor directly for further clarification and understanding.
