“If community organizing is the engine, the role of money is the fuel. So I like to think that we are actually fueling the movement for social change by making grants to community organizing projects.”
- Marsha Bonner, Philanthropic Leader and Grantmaker, North Star Fund Community Gala Honoree 2009
