What We Fund
Without tackling entire systemic problems facing our communities, Good Fight Grants go to confront challenges that are emblematic of these larger issues. These grants won’t end poverty, but they will help to provide school children across the country with socks and coats. They won’t stop sexual assault, but they will help to ensure that rape kits are tested when women bravely step forward to report these crimes. Funding won’t fix misogyny or put right the gender pay gap; but it can at least make certain that, of the many statues of notable figures in Central Park, at least one is of a woman.
At best these are small, incremental wins in larger and ongoing fights. They help to highlight issues and inequalities, and to raise awareness. They are not the cure, but these opportunities are tangible and we fund them because we believe in the power of momentum.
