Counter Recruitment Fund
2006 Roster of Grants

This roster includes grants from the Muste Institute’s Counter Recruitment Fund. CR Fund grants of up to $1,500 are directed to efforts to educate young people about the realities of military service and civilian alternatives.

The Muste Institute also makes grants from its general grantmaking program and administers several other special funds, including the International Nonviolence Training Fund and the NOVA Fund.

Fiscal sponsorships are funds from institutional grants and individual tax-deductible donations which the Muste Institute accepts as agent for the fiscally sponsored project or organization.

Separate guidelines are available for CR Fund grants, general grants, INTF grants and fiscal sponsorships.
