How our Donor-in-Movement Funds are different

We know there are people who want to use their wealth to advance social justice movements and don't want to participate in an extractive, wealth-centered DAF system. This is why we created Donor-in-Movement Funds.

Our Donor-in-Movement Funds are an alternative to traditional donor-advised funds, and are set up for donors with vision who want to ensure their giving is in alignment with their progressive values. They were created to make actionable and long-lasting change within Oregon's social justice movements, and built to spend down donations, not hold them in perpetuity. In addition, Donor-in-Movement Fund advisors know that Seeding Justice is uniquely suited to connect donors with the emerging, grassroots movements in Oregon whose work moves the needle toward a more just, democratic, and equitable world.

  • Each year, 50% of a DMF is allocated to our grassroots Grantmaking Committee. Their expertise within and knowledge of the grassroots, social justice landscape ensures these DMF funds will reach the groups and projects working to make the biggest impact across the state.
  • Another 40% of the funds in a DMF is distributed to groups of the donor’s choosing that are in alignment with Seeding Justice’s values and are led by the communities most impacted — Black and Indigenous folks and people of color (BIPOC); women and LGBTQ+ folks; people with disabilities; people living on low incomes; youth; and immigrants and refugees.
  • And 10% goes to Seeding Justice to provide operational support and keep us on the forefront of seeding justice in Oregon.
