The Justice Love Foundation

Connecting Diverse Voices for Change


The Justice Love Foundation, created by social justice and philanthropic leaders, is a diverse and responsive institution by design. We create convenings and investment strategies for social justice leaders that embrace a systems-level approach and harness the best impulses of justice, love, and collaboration to drive exponential impact. In particular, we focus on catalyzing, what we have coined, “philanthropic activism” and collaborating to bring forward and fund ideas that have transformative potential in the social justice ecosystem and can lead us to uncover new, more impactful ways of addressing chronic social challenges.
