To honor the legacy and leadership of 2003-2023 Executive Director Virginia Clarke, SAFSF is launching a special fundraising initiative, the Virginia Clarke Legacy Fund for Equity. Virginia worked to bring equity conversations and practices into all aspects of SAFSF’s work, opening the door for essential internal trainings and bold equity programming, and integrating equity practices across operations and organizational structure. The Virginia Clarke Legacy Fund for Equity will support intentional work to deepen and further operationalize SAFSF’s racial equity commitment and practices, and to provide programs and assistance to our members and network to do the same.
Help us reach our goal of $100,000 before Virginia’s departure at the end of 2023, and $250,000 by mid-2024, to build on her strong legacy. This work benefits every funder in SAFSF’s network – and by extension, the movements we support – and we are inviting all our members to make a pledge of support to the Virginia Clarke Legacy Fund for Equity. No amount is too small – or too large!
