For Grantmakers

Put your money where the movement is.

As JustFund, we’re on a mission to reset traditional philanthropy. We streamline the process for funders who want to center equity in their grantmaking and operationalize principles of trust-based philanthropy, rather than perpetuate outdated and inaccessible grantmaking practices. Through our common proposal and expert support, JustFund works with funders to set up a simple, efficient, and equitable grant cycle—freeing you up to be in meaningful relationship with your grantees and with other funders. With JustFund, you can save time, distribute power, increase your reach, measure your impact, and join a values-aligned community.

Let us take care of the transactional so you can be in transformative relationships with your grantees. To learn more about the various service options, see our Pricing.

One Common Proposal

JustFund is the nation’s first—and only—common proposal grantmaking solution.

Rather than requiring organizations to complete dozens of separate and time-consuming grant proposals, JustFund offers a common application model designed to save grantseekers time and help grantmakers with thoughtful decisions.

Like the college common application, grantmakers can ask up to three supplemental questions and request up to three attachments. Submitted proposals are also visible to all JustFunders, increasing exposure to new grantmakers and networks and expanding opportunities for organizations to receive additional funding.

Find and Fund

JustFund allows funders access to thousands of organizations and proposals on the portal. Every funder can use JustFund’s robust discover tool to filter across different categories (i.e. focus areas, geographic regions, strategies) to find and fund values-aligned organizations working at the forefront of social justice movements.

Funders can run field scans to better understand the current landscape of work, or follow and track funding activity around their grantees.

Values Aligned Community

JustFund is building a community of values-aligned funders.

On JustFund, funders can connect with other values-aligned funders and networks, see what organizations they are funding,  and learn more about their funding priorities. This model helps highlight grantees and leverage additional funding for their work.
