This publication tells the story of the Funding Exchange, a pioneering national network of social justice foundations that was created in 1979 and operated for nearly 35 years before deciding to disband. Its purpose is to provide an honest exploration of the Funding Exchange's experience – the network's significant influence as well as the problems and internal strains that led to its eventual dissolution.

This year Crossroads Fund was excited to launch a new initiative, the Giving Project, a model that was developed in 2010 by our sister fund in Seattle, Social Justice Fund Northwest (SJFNW). For six months the Giving Project brought together 14 individuals to participate in a three stage process that encouraged building community across race, class and other identities through fundraising and grantmaking.
