Members of the Criminal Justice Giving Project made history by being the first Giving Project to accomplish multi-year fundraising, and setting a record high of the most raised by a single Project! Together, the group ended their five month Giving Project by collectively raising over $248,000 in gifts (including support from the Riverstyx Foundation) and making 11, two year grants, to some amazing grassroots organizations.
Social Justice Fund is a member-funded foundation that supports the creation of a just society through fundraising, grantmaking, and member involvement. The foundation provides essential resources to organizations in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming to strengthen grassroots efforts in the broad-based movement for progressive, systemic social change.
These grants are a result of the hard work of our 2014 Montana Giving Project who participated in a five month process where they learned about social justice philanthropy, grantmaking, and fundraising.

We're excited to share the current issue of Grassroots Fundraising Journal, Deepening Donor Relationships featuring Social Justice Fund. In this article, Executive Director, Zeke Spier shares the story of Social Justice Fund and the transformation that led to our incredible growth.
Social Justice Fund’s Giving Project model has helped us grow from 300 to 1,800 donors in 3 years. We are seeking a Development Director to help us strengthen our fundraising infrastructure to sustain this larger base and set us up for further growth. We have a strong culture of fundraising and every one of our current staff of 10 contributes to building our donor base. The Development Director works in our Seattle office, reports to the Executive Director and supervises the Communications and Membership Manager.
