Fund for Safe Communities
The Fund for Safe Communities was established in 2018 to support tangible, specific, and meaningful actions to address and prevent violence. The inaugural grant round took place during the spring of 2020 under the leadership of an advisory committee made up of young people who have personal experience with community violence.
“I joined the committee to provide my perspective, which stems from my own lived experiences of community violence. The fund has given me an opportunity to give back to the community in a way I haven’t done before.” – Malik Rucker, Advisory Committee Member
