Seeding Justice has been at the forefront of the movement for justice for almost 50 years. Join us.

For more than 46 years, we have centered and been guided by those closest to the pain of injustice, and believe that philanthropy was created to be in service to the movement and work in the pursuit of justice. For us, this is not a far-off goal, it is our everyday work. 

With the support of people like you, we have been able to lead the movement for justice across the region. Without you, there is no Seeding Justice.

In order for Seeding Justice to respond quickly and nimbly, we need your support.

Your gift does so much more than fund the movement for justice – it helps transform our systems, and makes the future we envision possible. Thanks to donors like you, some of whom have been with us since our beginning days, we've been able to:

  • Be among the first funding partners for groups like Cascade AIDS Project, Black United Fund, Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (PCUN), Center for Intercultural Organizing (now Unite Oregon), Columbia Riverkeeper, Pro-Choice Oregon, and Trans*Ponder. We also funded the legal restoration of many terminated Tribes at a time no one else did. Today, we are funding groups that will be foundational to the movement for justice for years to come.

  • Open funds to address urgent, critical issues as they have arisen throughout our history, including the Bigotry Fund (1994) for LGBTQ+ rights; our 9/11 Critical Response Grants (2002) to promote peace and fight Islamophobia; our Democracy & Rights Fund (2018); and the Oregon Worker Relief Fund (2020). Today, we are proud to hold the Reproductive Health Equity Fund for abortion care, as well as the Chúush Fund and the Ambo Fund for Tribal water rights.


We are at a critical point in the movement for justice

Supporting nearly 200 non-profits across our region requires more than simply making grants; what Seeding Justice provides our grantees and communities is a full spectrum of care and resources, including coaching, connection, technical assistance, a deep support network, and, of course, funding. 

Money moves the movement for justice. Make your gift today.

Being a monthly donor is my small part to ensure this important work has funding it can count on.” –Liz Baxter, Oregon Public Health Institute and former Seeding Justice Foundation Board Member

Our Donor-in-Movement Funds have reimagined donor-advised giving. 

“When you establish a Donor-in-Movement Fund at Seeding Justice, you not only contribute to our collective work, but also establish a space in community with other donors in which to be grounded, to continuously learn, and to be only a phone call away when those unpredictable political moments that can define social justice movements occur.” — Rachel Robasciotti, Founder, Robasciotti & Philipson Social Justice Investing
