2018 Giving Projects

In 2018 Social Justice Fund will lead people through a process of learning, community building, fundraising and grantmaking for social change through our 2018 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.

What Giving Project Alumni Say About Their Experience

"THANK YOU [to SJF] for teaching me about giving. That it has the ability to dispel fear, disarm hate, and instill courage and strength in others... You have shown me that giving is essential to our humanity."
