Building on existing resources and thought leadership, through a participatory process informed by experienced philanthropists and leaders of social movements, Justice Funders Network created "The Choir Book: A Framework for Social Justice Philanthropy." This volume of social justice philanthropic praxis includes core values, individual competencies and actions that align values to practice in each stage of grantmaking. In combination, these values, competencies, and practices creates a comprehensive framework for effective social justice philanthropy.

"The Choir Book lays out the vital building blocks for the kind of philanthropy the world needs today. Even in its brevity, it is a great step by step guide to asking the right questions and changing the day-to-day work of philanthropy to better achieve equity and justice."
