for a more equitable world

Established in 2017, Dignity Fund is committed to safeguarding democracy and building a more equitable world. We champion voting rights, support equal access to justice, and work to protect and expand the civil rights of marginalized individuals and communities.

Our philanthropy is endowed through the generosity of an anonymous family, and we do not ask for donations. Instead, to fulfill our mission, Dignity Fund collaborates our giving with charities, businesses, nonprofits, and individuals. Together, we offer grants, partner with grassroots organizations, support legal aid clinics, sponsor educational programs, promote equality before the courts, raise awareness, and actively work to improve civic participation at local, national, and international levels.

We are building a strong network of like-minded individuals and organizations. By working together, our strategic partnerships encourage innovation and foster solutions that overcome systemic barriers and create lasting change. We invite you to join our community of change-makers and together, build a brighter, more equitable future for all.

Whether you are an individual donor, a nonprofit organization, manage a family trust or donor advisor fund (DAF), or a business eager to make a positive impact, we invite you to partner with the Dignity Fund family. Together, we can drive meaningful change and build a more just and equitable world.
