The Vanguard Justice Community Fund

The Vanguard Justice Community project started with the desire to help bring our community out of shock in the aftermath of the demise of the Vanguard Public Foundation. We have accomplished much of what we set out to do, and are ready to bring closure to our efforts. 

Thanks to many of you who donated, we were able to contribute $2000 each to 24 of the social justice organizations who unfortunately did not receive grants that had been promised them by the Vanguard Public Foundation. Thank you to The San Francisco Foundation and the Peace Development Fund for being conduits for those grants. See below for the list of organizations that received grants.
