Aims and questions

Foundations for Social Justice is a network of leaders of foundations working to promote social justice.

The group meets four times a year and provides:

  • A thinking space to make sense of the changing context of work for social justice
  • A safe environment for peers to share their ways of working, leadership challenges and opportunities
  • Connections to a peer group of leaders
  • The opportunity to learn from national and international practitioners

Through these meetings members identify, shape and participate in emerging collaborations.

You can read more about Foundations for Social Justice in this blog.

How to get involved

The network is currently extending a warm invitation for up to five new members to join them.

Membership of Foundations for Social Justice is open to Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF) members and there is an additional annual cost of £1450 to join.

If you are a foundation leader (chief executive or equivalent) whose organisation has a strong focus on social justice issues, possibly within a broader remit, and if you have a personal commitment to collaborative action, get in touch with ACF to express an interest.

Who's involved

Members of Foundations for Social Justice vary greatly in size, location, and funding areas but all have a strong focus on advancing social justice issues. Current members include Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Carnegie UK and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
