Fund for An Inclusive California - Common Counsel Foundation

We believe that the people who bear the brunt of unjust housing policies and the negative impacts of profit-driven development should have power to determine what development looks like in their neighborhoods. That’s why we are committed to supporting long-term power-building and organizing infrastructure in California.

The Fund for an Inclusive California is a collaborative funding initiative co-designed with grassroots leaders to advance racial and economic equity by building the power of communities of color to achieve housing justice.

Anchored in a power-building framework, we focus on investing in the leadership of communities directly affected by unjust and racist housing policies, so that they may harness their individual and collective power to ensure that all people regardless of income have a safe, healthy, affordable, and stable place to call home. 


Register Today: Virtual Learning Session in Southern California’s Inland Region 

The rich history of powerful organizing in a heavily racist environment has made the Inland Region a unique place where leaders continue to develop innovative and inspiring strategies to combat poverty, exclusionary housing policies, climate and environmental crises, and racism.

The Fund for an Inclusive California and Neighborhood Funders Group are honored to partner with the amazing organizations leading the fight for racial, economic, housing, and environmental justice in the Inland Region for a virtual learning visit for funders and philanthropic support organizations. As the U.S. begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the innovations and organizing power of the Inland region’s social movements makes it a strategic community for deep investment.

During this three day event, hear from grassroots leaders, workers, and people directly impacted by the intersecting conditions in the region, and learn how your foundation can fund movement partners so they can continue to build power.
