Dear SJF Community,

Spring is warming up and so is our work at Social Justice Fund!  Giving Projects are in full swing, with over 100 long-time and brand new Social Justice Fund members dedicating their time and energy to help us build a progressive movement for justice in the northwest.

Giving Project Panel

Today marks the start of a unique opportunity for you to double the impact of your contribution to SJF. From April 17th-26th, Kellogg Foundation’s Cultures of Giving Program has offered to match all online contributions to SJF up to $20,000, with additional prizes possible if we exceed that goal, up to $100,000!

This is a huge opportunity for us to leverage support from a national funder, and one more great reason to make a gift to SJF today! Only online donations through this link will be matched–click here to support SJF.

As we’re expanding our work (thanks to your help!), this is a great opportunity to take some time to reflect on all the ways that Social Justice Fund has an impact—the grants we make, the community we create, and the long-term leaders that emerge through our programs.  This week we’ll be sending out a few emails from supporters like you about why they believe in Social Justice Fund.  Whether or not you’ve already contributed, take a minute and read these messages—they’re inspiring reminders about what we can achieve when we come together.

If your membership is up for renewal, this is a great time to renew. If you have never given to SJF before, this is a perfect chance to get involved. And if you’ve already given, we invite you to consider making an additional contribution—of any amount—to help us receive as much of this match as possible.

Whether you can contribute $50,000, $5,000, $500, or $50 your contribution is a fundamental part of our efforts to build a movement of activists, philanthropists and donor organizers of all giving levels, who support social justice throughout the region.

Help us cultivate a new culture of philanthropy—one that is accountable to the grassroots, responsive to community needs, and built for long-term sustainability.

Thank you for your support.

Executive Director
