Social Justice Fund NW is a foundation working at the frontlines of social change. We leverage the resources of our members to foster significant, long-term social justice solutions throughout Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming.
Bottom Line for Portland
Portland Giving Projects granted $380,000 last year. Giving Projects are cross-class, multiracial groups who develop shared understandings of race, class and power. Members donate, fundraise from their communities and make collective decisions to grant the money raised to some of the most inspiring, effective social change work in the Northwest.
“As a mixed-race, black, queer product of immigrants, I have often felt out of place. Because of SJF, I had very real—sometimes very difficult—conversations with friends and family about race, money, immigration and social issues. SJF provided the tools and support I needed to show up.” —Aaron Oravillo, SJF Giving Project alum
