JustFund’s Week of Restoration

Dear JustFund Community,

With the summer season in full swing, we at JustFund have decided it’s time to embrace rest and restoration. From Monday, August 28 through Monday, September 4 the JustFund team will be taking a break during our inaugural summer Week of Restoration.

During this time, our office will be closed, and we will temporarily step away from our day-to-day operations. We believe in the importance of rest and renewal, not just as a form of self-care, but as a catalyst for innovation and growth. We know rest is crucial for our physical and mental health and well-being. Additionally, we have learned that rest enhances creativity as it gives our minds the opportunity to wander, explore new ideas, and make connections that we may have otherwise not considered. 

This Week of Restoration will allow our team to recharge our spirits, nurture our creativity, and return with renewed vigor to continue our mission on Tuesday, September 5. Rest assured, all inquiries and communications received during our break will be addressed upon our return.

Wishing you all a wonderful end of summer.  

Warmly,
The JustFund Team
