The Communities First Fund was established on March 15th, 2020 in response to the negative impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. To date we have raised over $1 million and made over 45 grants to organizations on the front lines supporting the needs of their communities.

At this time we are no longer accepting contributions to the Communities First Fund, and instead are redirecting gifts of all sizes to The Transformation Fund. And as always, your dollars combined with those from your fellow donors,will help our grassroots grantee partners, the majority of which are led by and serve Black people, Indigenous people, and people of color.
