Social Justice Resources
The Foundation Center and Independent Sector define social justice philanthropy as: the granting of philanthropic contributions to nonprofit organizations based in the United States and other countries that work for structural change in order to increase the opportunity of those who are the least well off politically, economically and socially.
Community Foundation Social Justice Fund is a field of interest fund dedicated to understanding and interrupting the traditional patterns of exclusion which prevent equal opportunity for all.
Check back here often as additional resources will be added. We intend these resources to be used to plan, deliver and evaluate programs designed to advance social justice. If you have resources to suggest to be added to this page, please email us at email@example.com.
Community Foundation is also skilled at using these resources to provide philanthropic advising with donors and your professional advisors to help gift planning.
Community Foundation offers these data as examples and resources for your planning purposes. We do not vet these resources and acknowledge that imperfections and incompleteness exist. Please contact us with additional resources by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
