INITIAL INQUIRY FORM FOR SEEDS OF HOPE FUNDING
Seeds of Hope is intended to help survivors further their career goals; awards will go to projects or opportunities that directly fuel survivors' personal growth and provides hope to others.
Seeds of Hope strives to provide support fairly. Protocol requires documentation that shows survivorship. (Examples: a recognition as a survivor leader, article or published bio, a personal short story about your experience or phone call with a mentor or a professional person of reference, a letter from a program or legal documents associated with your exploitation). If you are unable to provide these documents we are able to connect you with a local survivor leader to conduct a short non-incriminating interview that will be kept confidential.
