CCF’s Grantmaking for Social Change in 2019 

Common Counsel Foundation is pleased to share the grantmaking we supported in 2019. Every year we work in partnership with individuals and families, foundation partners and projects to support social justice movements and grassroots leaders’ work in communities across the country. 

In 2019, we managed 470 grants totaling approximately $8.2 million, through donor-advised funds, collaborative grantmaking initiatives, and our philanthropic advisory services to family foundations.  

These grants went to organizations in 42 states, plus Puerto Rico, and Canada. We are proud to share that 90% of these grants were general operating support, allowing for community organizations to use their expertise and have flexible dollars to address the pressing needs for their work, and to set a community-directed vision for their work.
