Recent events continue to expose a long history of systemic racism that exists in the United States, a history where Black people have been marginalized, brutalized, and lynched because of a bias against the color of their skin.

In response to these atrocities, our networks approached us with many questions, most predominantly: “Where and how can I help?” As a response, the Anti Racism Fund formed to create a platform to streamline the donation process into targeted organizations that take action to fight injustice and support our community.

We understand racism permeates our society and its institutions. Our goal is to eradicate these inequalities and build equity in our communities. The Anti Racism Fund provides capital to organizations as a way to inject social change. We connect you with a hand-selected portfolio of organizations aligned with our Four Pillars of Purpose.
