Spitfire Strategies

Spitfire is committed to advancing racial, economic and social justice. We believe it’s critical to center the voices of people who are most impacted by systemic injustice. As part of our commitment, we have established a pro bono fund to offer communications support to nonprofit organizations with Black leaders that center the Black community in their work to advance racial equity across a range of social justice issues including health care, criminal justice reform, economic justice, arts and culture, etc. Organizations must have 501(c)(3) status and with little or no dedicated communications capacity.

Interested? Fill out the application here.

Applications will be accepted until Tuesday, June 30 at 5:00 PM in your local time zone. Projects will be selected by Wednesday, July 15.
