Art for Justice Fund Established


Dive in to the news that philanthropist Agnes Gund has given a $100 million donation from the sale of her personal art collection to create the new national Art for Justice Fund. In partnership with the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropic Advisors, Gund’s donation will “provide vital new resources to organizations working to address mass incarceration.” Gund chose to give to such organizations because she believes “the criminal justice system in its current state—particularly in its treatment of people of color—is unfair and unjust” and hopes her fund “can inspire change and help pave the way for a better, safer future for our communities and the millions of people whose lives are devastated by mass incarceration.”
