2020 Black Lives Matter Fund

About

Bright Funds stands in solidarity and support with Black communities across the United States. We are committed to empowering the activists, donors, companies, and nonprofits that are playing an ongoing role in ushering in a long overdue era of dignity, security, and equality to Black communities. Bright Funds has established the Black Lives Matter Fund, composed of pre-vetted nonprofits working in various areas of reform to end racial discrimination in the criminal justice system and address the overarching systemic injustices facing the Black community in every corner of society. This special Fund was created to reflect our deep belief and commitment to a world where Black lives are no longer systematically targeted, and where justice prevails. Through a single tax deductible donation to the Fund you will support a group of nonprofits that are part of the movement to fight for freedom, liberation, and justice for all Black lives.
