Amidst a global pandemic, a time in which we oscillate between being completely and fully hopeful to moments of anxiety, we welcome our 40th Anniversary with awe, joy, optimism, and gratitude for the community we have created along the way. 

In 1981, the founders of Crossroads Fund formed a public foundation that believed in deconstructing systems at their root by supporting grassroots organizing, sharing decision-making power with informed community grantmaking, joyfully redistributing their wealth, funding rapid responses to community needs, and championing change, not charity. These guiding principles continue to be our north star.

In 2021 we will have a year-long celebration of what we have collectively accomplished, the many organizing wins that have been achieved, and the communities and individuals that have been part of our history with a keen eye to the 40 years ahead.

We welcome you to join us in celebrating 40 years rooted in radical change and in recommitting ourselves to sustain liberation movements. Be on the lookout for all the events and opportunities we have lined up in 2021.

Throughout the year, we will be featuring videos by friends of Crossroads Fund saluting our milestone. Here is a short compilation to kick us off! 

We invite you to join the celebration of our 40th Anniversary by submitting a video too. Submit here.

In celebration and gratitude,

Jane Kimondo

Executive Director
