The Survivors Recovery Fund is a community-advised fund dedicated to promoting the recovery of survivors of partner abuse and sexual assault.

Eligibility

To be considered for a SRF grant, applicants must be survivors, live in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, or Hampshire Counties, and have a relationship with a registered 501 (c)(3) organization that agrees to sponsor the applicant.

Two Types of Funding

Match My Savings

SRF will support survivors’ efforts to create savings by offering matching grants for survivors’ self-identified, financial goals.  SRF will provide $2 for every $1 saved for a maximum of $100 per month for a maximum of 12 months.  For example, if a survivor saves $25 per month for six months, SRF will provide a matching grant of $300.

Now

SRF will offer non-matching grants of $500 maximum for survivors’ immediate needs for economic relief.

Application

SRF will only consider one grant application per applicant.
