Four Freedoms Fund

Four Freedoms Fund

Four Freedoms Fund (FFF) was founded in 2003 to build the capacity of immigrant rights field organizations at the regional level. FFF currently supports grantees in approximately 30 states and manages a number of strategic initiatives: a Southeast Fund to support emerging groups in the deep South; a Capacity Building Initiative to strengthen its grantees’ organizational infrastructure; a Strategic Communications project to improve messaging and expand communications capacity of field groups; a Civic Participation Initiative to help FFF grantees conduct effective Get Out the Vote (GOTV) activities; a Response to Harsh Enforcement Initiative to advocate for reforms to overly harsh immigrant enforcement policies; and programs to support DACA/DAPA outreach and application assistance. FFF also re-granted significant resources in 2013 to support public education activities on issues arising from the federal immigration reform debate. In addition to Unbound Philanthropy, FFF’s donors include the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Coulter Foundation, Ford Foundation, Gates Foundation, Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, J.M. Kaplan Fund, Open Society Foundations, JPB Foundation, the Hagedorn Foundation and an anonymous donor. Unbound Philanthropy’s grant to the FFF is the primary way in which we support immigrant rights advocacy at the state and local levels.
