Nonprofit Remote Digest - Issue #588
We believe that philanthropy shouldn’t be about barriers and bottlenecks. Created by funders and organizers of color: JustFund removes traditional barriers that prevent funders from moving resources efficiently to organizations on the frontlines.
JustFund – JustFund is an innovative web platform that connects funders directly with grassroots organizations across the country. Technology has been central to the shifts we have made to weather the pandemic: Work, school, and social gatherings moved online virtually overnight, and organizations had to ensure they too were prepared to navigate and thrive in a tech-dependent world. And while the shift to digital has been ongoing – in fact, PEAK members have been in the vanguard of adopting and adapting digital grantmaking systems and processes for years – 2020 intensified the pace of change and the urgency around conversations about the intersection between technology and equity.
