Accelerator Catalyst Grants

The Welcome Fund, in partnership with Community Sponsorship Hub’s Catalyst Fund and The Shapiro Foundation, is funding select Private Sponsorship Organizations (PSOs) of the Welcome Corps program to mobilize and support sponsors for Welcome Corps and humanitarian parole programs. The grant program aims to significantly increase the number of sponsors welcoming newcomers, helping to solidify sponsorship as a core mechanism for receiving newcomers in the United States. Round 1 grantees will be announced in mid June 2023. Organizations that are approved as Welcome Corps Private Sponsorship Organizations will be notified of how to apply for future rounds of funding.

All of Us 2023 Grants

In May 2023, The Welcome Fund awarded 39 local and national organizations engaging Americans in supporting Afghan newcomers. Through these efforts, grantees will collectively serve over 30,000 Afghans and engage over 5,000 community members in supporting newcomers as they rebuild their lives in the United States. Grantees were selected based on their ability to engage community members in assisting Afghan newcomers and prioritized three key areas: workforce development, social-emotional wellness, and education and career support for transitional-aged young adults.
