About Us

Welcome to Collective Future Fund

Collective Future Fund is working with philanthropy and visionary changemakers to build a collective future where all women, girls, trans and nonbinary people and survivors of color are not only safe from state, workplace and interpersonal violence, but live in shared abundance, joy, and power.

Grantmaking

Our grantee partners are working across borders at the forefront of movements to end interpersonal, workplace, and state violence in all its forms, and are all led by and center Black women, Indigenous, women of color, trans and nonbinary people of color, and survivors.

Menīkānaehkem

Native communities have had to close shelters due to the pandemic, so the Menīkānaehkem’s Tiny Homes for Healing project is building more safe, transitional houses for survivors and vulnerable community members, meeting an urgent need for community members experiencing homelessness, economic difficulties, and gender-based violence while demonstrating how to be self-sustainable, gain a connectedness to Mother Earth, and grow community ownership of health.

Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project

BLMP envisions a world where no one is forced to give up their homeland, where all Black LGBTQIA+ people are free and liberated. We build and center the power of Black LGBTQIA+ migrants to ensure the liberation of all Black people through community-building, political education, creating access to direct services, and organizing across borders. BLMP is an independent organization that is fiscally sponsored by Transgender Law Center.

Just Associates

Convening survivor-focused #metoo organizing efforts in the Global South, with particular focus on movements like South Africa’s #totalshutdown, reflection on the power of political participation through the What Women Want campaign in Zimbabwe, the experiences of garment workers’ and their engagement with the International Labour Organization in Cambodia, and women fighting for democracy and livelihoods in Honduras.

Our Focus

Collaborative Grantmaking

Our collaborative grant making process centers gender based violence, breaking this siloed issue out of artificially narrow constraints to instead frame it as a core connective tissue between a diverse range of issues impacting the wellbeing of Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ people and survivor communities.

Economic Justice

Recognizing the impact of economic injustice in perpetuating violence, we’re accelerating efforts to end harassment and violence in the workplace, especially in the informal sector where workers lack protections and formal reporting processes. 

Transformative Change

Our partners are unapologetically redefining the standards of who holds power, redefining power collectively to subvert notions of authority conferred by Whiteness and Maleness, to create the laws, policies, practices, and cultural strategies that build accountability, promote women’s and girls’ leadership, and shift power in lasting ways.

Healing Justice

We resource survivors and leaders of color to thrive in their full power through healing justice, moving from silence to power with a radical vision that builds collective power.

Racial Justice

We are committed to centering girls and women of color, Black, Indigenous, and migrant women who are most impacted and who are the leaders of movements to end violence, proactively seeking out and prioritizing solutions that address violence through a lens of racial justice.

Transnational Movement-building

We resource transformational leaders working to build solidarity transnationally, especially exchanging strategies within the Global South or between the Global South and Global North, in service of the international movement to end violence in all its forms.
