About the Roots

The Roots is the North Star Fund guide to the organizations who are working on the grassroots level for justice and fairness in New York City.

Who’s included in the Roots?

The Roots includes grassroots organizations that have received a North Star Fund grant in the last three years, both from our regular grant cycles and through our donor advised program. In some cases, we've also included past grantee organizations based on the work they are currently engaged in. The hundreds of groups included here work across the city on a range of issues, and organize communities from the hundreds to the thousands.
