2018 Fund Recipients

Last year was the Action Fund’s inaugural year, and we heard from a diverse group of organizations from across the country working towards telling the full American story. The need for this type of funding is clear and we were able to support 16 projects with a total of $1.1 million in funding.

From the City of Birmingham in Alabama to the South Side Community Art Center in Chicago, learn more about the 2018 Action Fund recipients.
