In 1979, the North Star Fund was founded out of a deep sense of justice and commitment to social change. Over time it became the leading social justice foundation in support of grassroots struggles for equality, economic justice, and peace in New York City.
The founders recognized that the most marginalized and disenfranchised communities, neighborhoods and political ideas needed resources in order to build leadership and create change. Over the course of 30 years, North Star Fund advanced the social justice movement by providing support to communities with limited resources and by helping to build a network of grassroots organizations in the arenas where activists organize--workers' and immigrants' rights, economic justice, health care, environmental justice and prison reduction.
