Purpose and Activities

The fund cultivates and supports efforts to bring about social change that moves humanity towards a more just and compassionate coexistence. Primary interest is placed on proposals from organizations that: 1) pursue structural changes to root causes of race, class, and gender injustice; 2) value the active involvement of members of the communities most impacted by the violence and social injustice being addressed; 3) understand and articulate the impact of their work on women and promote the leadership of women within the organization; 4) work through networks, coalitions and alliances; 5) reflect the spirit of nonviolence in their organizational relations, structure, and process; and 6) demonstrate the capacity to reflect on their experience and adapt to lessons and insights .
