Be Part of The Transformation

The Just East Bay Fund embodies our mission to partner with donors, social movements, and the community to eliminate structural barriers, advance racial equity, and transform political, social, and economic outcomes for all who call the East Bay home.

Join us and support a strategic regional approach that is about more than grantmaking – one that is about placemaking. Our approach is about creating conditions for a community to grow and thrive.

Our team knows the most pressing issues in the region and the organizations and leaders who are tirelessly working toward solutions. As leaders in philanthropy, we believe we must be partners and allies to the community organizations and movement leaders who are the driving force for change.

Donate today and become part of a network of active supporters and partners dedicated to advancing social change and building an inclusive, fair, and just East Bay!

Support Our Core Strategies for A Just East Bay

Funds raised through The Just East Bay Fund support core grantee partners who are leaders in one or more of our four core strategies that drive social change.

Meet Our Core Grantee Partners

Our core grantee partners are leaders in one or more of our core program strategies. Our grantmaking prioritizes organizations led by and in service of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI), South & Southwest Asian and North African (SSWANA) communities, and those impacted by multiple, intersectional systems of oppression.

During the first two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, our core grantee partners’ efforts resulted in substantial tenant and eviction protections, the increase of equitable access to vaccines, support for youth and their families in school transitions, key wins on local ballot measures, stronger policies in favor of worker and immigrant rights, and efforts to reimagine public safety. In addition, grantee recipients have been crucial in shifting racial equity narratives and building racial solidarity through campaigns such as Stop API Hate, Black Lives Matter, and Ending Deportation.    

We invite you to get to know our core grantee partners.

Donors can fund this work through The Just East Bay Fund, and EBCF fund advisors can make grant recommendations directly through Donor Central.
