Introducing the Social Justice & Resiliency Fund

The Social Justice and Resiliency Fund targets funding to nonprofits led by and serving our most marginalized neighbors. These organizations work deep within local communities to organize and advocate for a more just future. This means better access, more inclusion and security for all. By investing in the capacity of these organizations, we can rise together and build our shared resiliency for the challenges ahead.
