In 2020, LGF provided two grants to the Southern Power Fund in support of racial justice work across the South.

The Southern Power Fund's immediate goal is the strategic and effective distribution of funds money to frontline organizations leading transformational efforts throughout the region. Four Southern anchor organizations: Southerners On New Ground, The Highlander Research and Education Center, Project South and Alternate Roots, will collectively raise funds toward a $10 million Rapid Response Fund, and will strategically distribute $8 million to BIPOC-led organizing efforts in a time of crisis. They provide an accessible process for Southern organizations and community groups to access general operating funds with no strings attached and minimal hassle.
