Justice Funders is a partner and guide for philanthropy in reimagining practices that advance a thriving and just world. We believe that such a world cannot be achieved if institutional philanthropy is constrained by its ingrained practices that uphold the accumulation of wealth and power, while perpetuating systemic social and economic inequality. Responding to the needs of both movements and the philanthropic sector, Justice Funders supports individual, organizational, and field-wide transformation in philanthropy to achieve a just transition. We are guided by the Just Transition principles that build political and economic power to shift from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy. Justice Funders' work encompasses the Bay Area Justice Funders Network, leadership development programs, consulting, and an innovation & action lab.
