Giving Projects

In 2015 Social Justice Fund will lead people through a process of learning, community building, fundraising and grantmaking for social change through our 2015 Giving Projects. We’re excited to continue offering Giving Projects in Seattle, Portland, and Montana. Our core model continues to be incredibly successful in developing leadership and moving money to social justice organizing. Each Giving Project guides members through a deep process of learning about race, class, fundraising, and social change.
