What is a Justice Funder?

  • September 04, 2014
  • 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • California Endowment - 1111 Broadway, 7th Floor, Oakland
In this time of accelerated social change, many in philanthropy are grappling with how to affect systemic change to attack the root causes of injustice. How can funders put power back in the hands of marginalized communities, embrace humility and cultural sensitivity so that we can amplify the most innovative solutions emerging from the grassroots, and form authentic, democratic partnerships based on respect, transparency and mutual learning? How can funders realign their organizational priorities to support social movements for progressive change? Explore these and other questions, as we engage with what it means to be a justice funder.

This Bay Area program will include reflections from veteran social justice grantmakers:

In addition, this event will include interactive discussion around real grantmaking dilemmas from:

  • Chivy Sok, Tikva Grassroots Empowerment Fund
  • Cathy Lerza, former Executive Director of the Beldon Fund


The program will conclude with a brief presentation by the Bay Area Justice Funders Network about their new strategic direction.


Light refreshments will be served.
