2017 Giving Projects

In 2017 Social Justice Fund will lead people through a process of learning, community building, fundraising and grantmaking for social change through our 2017 Giving Projects. We’re excited to continue offering Giving Projects in Seattle and Portland. 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.

Momentum Giving Project

For Giving Project alumni only... 

With less time commitment (four to five meetings over four months) but high impact, this model is the one inch punch of social justice philanthropy - a way for GP alumni to stay engaged and challenged in their giving and donor organizing, while learning more about a focused aspect of our grantmaking. In 2017, we will offer one Seattle-based Momentum Giving Project.
