Why We Invested
Democracy Fund believes that when diverse and bipartisan organizations and communities work together for the common good, we are able to create safe and secure communities, develop a sense of shared national identity, and make space to defend constitutional norms under attack.
Pillars Fund invests in American Muslim organizations, leaders, and storytellers to build stronger communities where our differences, as well as our similarities, are understood and celebrated. Recognizing the power of media and pop culture to influence our daily lives by shaping our perceptions of one another, Pillars Fund is designing a long-term culture change strategy in partnership with Pop Culture Collaborative. We believe that developing an American Muslim pop culture cohort through Pillars Fund would enable Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities to develop and share their own narratives, and ultimately better advocate for themselves and others.
