What is The Movement Building Fund?
This fund is utilized by all of PLAN’s projects to remove financial barriers to involvement and directly support people who have been historically marginalized within or by the Zero Waste Movement. This fund provides things like travel stipends to our annual conference, sliding-scale tickets to all of our events, and free and subsidized membership access to under-resourced campuses. To further understand how we see our work growing in the future, please visit our Strategic Plan.
What Will PLAN Do With Your Donation?
Provide campuses with free and subsidized memberships, when needed, to support student-led waste initiatives and develop students' leadership skills.
Expand the accessibility of our events and conference by offering sliding-scale ticket prices and travel scholarships to students.
Offer payment to community organizers, student leaders, frontline activists, and others that we ask to speak, facilitate, train, advise, or consult with us.
Fund student interns, fellows, and organizers that work with our team to further grassroots efforts.
Offer healthcare, electronics, and travel stipends to full and part-time staff to ensure that everyone on our team has access to the tools they need to accomplish their work safely and effectively.
