Crossroads Fund is so excited to announce our 2021 Giving Project cohort - a multi-racial, cross-class, intersectional group of 21 people who have committed to fundraise $150,000 to fund movement work in Chicago. 

Over the course of six months, this group will have deep personal conversations on race and class, make a monetary donation that is significant to them, fundraise their network through a process of "donor organizing," and practice participatory grantmaking supporting strategic, necessary, and underfunded social justice organizing work around the city. Since 2014, Crossroads Fund's Giving Projects have raised more than $500,000 from over 1,000 donors.
