We’re doing the research and talking with nonprofits that serve marginalized communities. They tell us about the great work they’re doing and about any barriers to their success. Your gift can go straight to helping them overcome those barriers.
If you want to support historically excluded communities without building your own infrastructure, please give to The UnFoundation. We’ll make sure your money goes to work right away.
If you do start your own foundation, please consider giving away more than the IRS-required five percent. Or give directly to nonprofits whose work you admire.
Foundations are nonprofits that give money in the form of grants to other nonprofits. The IRS requires foundations to give away just five percent of their assets every year. Donors get a tax deduction for their entire gift, but 95 percent of it is collecting interest instead of changing lives.
We believe that every person deserves access to the resources and opportunities they need to thrive. Unfortunately, many individuals and communities face systemic barriers that prevent them from reaching their full potential. That's why we're dedicated to breaking down these barriers and helping marginalized communities empower themselves to build a brighter future.
We are laser focused on the change that oppressed communities would like to see.
We are making progress as fast as we can. You can view our roadmap below.
The moment we reach this goal, you’ll be able to make tax-deductible donations.
Once we have revenue numbers for a year, we’ll be able to give away half of our assets.
The UnFoundation is currently in the process of developing new programs and initiatives, expanding our reach, and forging new partnerships that will help us achieve our goals. We can't wait to share more information with you soon.
