ABOUT US

Funders for Justice is a national network and organizing platform for grant-makers, donor networks, and funder affinity groups to mobilize resources to grassroots organizing at the intersections of racial justice, gender justice, ending criminalization, and building models for community safety & justice.

Funders for Justice enables philanthropy’s role in partnering with communities of color towards creating and living with dignity, free from state, interpersonal, and systemic violence. We know that models and frameworks of community safety and justice cross many places, identities, lived experiences, and movements; are decided by communities most impacted by violence; and are deeply informed by the place in which people live.


“We keep each other safe. When governments, schools and the healthcare system fail communities — everyday people take action to create safety. It is my deepest desire to live in a world where safety can be realized without punishment. When we get to that world, the possibilities for transformation will become endless.”

— Charlene Carruthers, FFJ Advisor


We hope this tool provides the necessary information to guide your strategic grant-making and to shape your internal and external conversations.

Fundersforjustice.org serves as a jump-off point for FFJ’s virtual organizing community – where funders learn together and organize to move resources to grassroots organizing led by and for communities of color.

FFJ lifts up funding needs and opportunities directly from the field, and also helps connect its members to partnership opportunities with peer funders. Email us at info [at] funders4justice.org to receive funding recommendations directly from FFJ staff and to join our email list.
