PILLARS OF PURPOSE
The Anti Racism Fund takes action by providing 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. Our current initiative supports Silver Art Projects; a non-profit organization that supports, incubates and accelerates overlooked artists by providing free, year-long studio space at 4 World Trade Center, community-driven patronage, and career-focused mentorship designed to enable artists to conduct sustainable business practices.
Our four pillars of purpose are:
Justice System Reform
Health & Wellness Access
Community Outreach & Social Justice Advocacy
*Checks payable to Anti Racism Fund Inc can be mailed to: 640 Axminister Dr., Fenton, MO 63026.
All contributions to the Anti-Racism Fund are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by US law through the Anti-Racism Fund's fiscal sponsor, the Telos Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization recognized by the IRS.

HOW THE FUND WORKS
ARF is implementing a 60-day rotating initiative model. Generally, during each 60-day period, ARF will accept donations to the current initiative selected by ARF. Because the timing and amount of donations to ARF is not predictable, ARF will extend or reduce the 60-day period when ARF, at its discretion, believes such extension or reduction in the donation period is aligned with ARF’s mission, purpose, and values. ARF also has the ability to roll over funding to a subsequent initiative when ARF deems current initiative funding to be sufficient. ARF strongly values transparency and will communicate when, in ARF’s judgment, current initiative funding is complete.
In addition to meeting our values and purpose as described in our Mission Statement, we also research each prospective organization as part of our reasonable efforts to conduct due diligence and ensure the legitimacy and ethical standards each organization to which the Anti-Racism Fund provides capital. While we are not a charity “watchdog” organization, we believe our process is reasonably designed to mitigate the risk of improper or fraudulent uses. The organizations with which we work are on notice that if we believe they are not meeting our standards with respect to our mission, ethical standards, or legal requirements, we will no longer provide capital or any other support to them.
We review based on various criteria, including, among other steps:
Confirm each organization’s 501(c)(3) or equivalent status
Search data available in such repositories as BBB Wise Giving Alliance, Charity Navigator, CharityWatch, and GuideStar.
Interview the organization leaders
Review news and social media sources
