FUNDING NEEDS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Launched by the North Star Fund, The Let Us Breathe Fund is an opportunity to turn this crucial moment into a lasting movement that supports activism for fair and just policing and resilient and economically sustainable communities.
In support of the growing momentum across many philanthropic spaces, NFG reached out to four organizations deeply involved in Ferguson October for their viewpoint on the weekend of actions, this moment in organizing, what lies ahead, and what the critical resource needs are right now.
The purpose of this fund is to address the root causes leading to these tragic events and accelerate the momentum created by organizers on the ground at nonprofit community groups that are advancing racial justice and developing strategies to advance lasting systemic change.
