Funded with an initial Oregon Health Authority grant of $200,000 (all of which was distributed to BIPOC folks within three weeks), ARAF has recently received a $500,000 Measure 110 grant to prevent the loss of statewide housing stock available to people in recovery, especially those affected by drug criminalization.

Ambo Fund, Water for The Klamath

Named after the word for water in the Klamath language, the Ambo Fund was established in partnership with the Klamath Tribes in June 2021.

Our newest Community Fund, the Ambo Fund received an initial investment of $100,000 from Seeding Justice. Donations to this fund will help The Klamath Tribes as they work to save the endangered c’waam and koptu fish populations in the upper Klamath Lake. Their goal is to provide fish restoration to upper Klamath Lake, rebuild riparian areas, and continue to defend their rightful ownership of water rights in the basin during one of the worst droughts in recent memory.

Donate to the Ambo Fund.

Seeding Justice is able to host Community Funds like the Ambo Fund thanks to the generosity of our donors. Every gift made to The Klamath Tribes goes directly to the community. We invite you to help keep Seeding Justice strong for years to come by making a separate donation to Seeding Justice.

Chúush Fund, Water for Warm Springs

On May 31, 2019, the Tribal Council of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs approved an emergency disaster declaration due to the immediate health threats resulting from water main line break in the Shitike Creek.

Over two years into rolling water outages and a boil water notice across Oregon’s largest reservation, there is still no relief in sight. The first partnership of its kind, the Chúush Fund was made possible when the Tribes and Seeding Justice came together to provide a pathway for contributions from foundations and individuals to reach Warm Springs as the community works to restore its infrastructure and access to clean water.

The CRRF opens grant applications once a year in the fall season and its grantmaking committee will be composed of climate and racial justice activists. Explore our grants page for more info on the application process, coming soon.

The OWR Infrastructure Fund was established in March 2020 to resource the community-based organizations (“navigators”) tasked with helping undocumented workers access unemployment relief during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The fund has raised over $2.5 million so far, of which $2 million has been granted to Navigators. A Steering Committee—composed of OWRF coalition members CAUSA, PCUN, Innovation Law Lab, Consejo Hispano, and APANO—developed the initial grantmaking process and criteria; they approve the grants and Seeding Justice distributes the funds.
