Local nonprofit consultancy to award pro-bono services to promote tolerance and understanding

The Ostara Group works to support ideas that further compassion in Washington state SEATTLE, WA - The Ostara Group is granting 25 hours of pro-bono support in fundraising and organizational strategy for an emerging nonprofit promoting tolerance and understanding.

The rise of hate motivated speech and attacks has been dramatic in the wake of the presidential election. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, there were nearly 900 hate incidents reported across the country in the 10 days following the election.

In the wake of 9/11, which saw a similar rise in hate incidents, multiple nonprofit organizations grew out of a response to rising intolerance. OneAmerica was founded to advocate for immigrant rights. Tasveer premiered a South Asian film festival to dispel stereotypes. OneWorldNow! sought to bring foreign language, leadership, and study abroad programs to high-need schools. Founder Kristen Hayden writes: 'Tired of complaining about the inequity and injustice in our nation's public schools' leadership & we launched OneWorldNow! after the tragic events of 9/11 as a good-faith effort to be 'part of the solution'.'

In an effort to help a budding nonprofit realize its potential, The Ostara Group will provide 25 hours of free, custom designed support. Founder Kyle Halmrast says, 'With this grant, our goal is to catalyze critical ideas and positive social change.'

The grant is open to anyone in Washington state who wishes to start a nonprofit, or to existing nonprofits whose budgets were less than $300,000 in the most recently completed year. Submissions will be accepted through Tuesday, January 31 at 5 pm, and decisions will be announced by March 31, 2017.
