Grants

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative makes grants to organizations working in support of our missions in Science, Education, and Justice & Opportunity – as well as giving directed to our local community. Grants are awarded via three funding entities: the Chan Zuckerberg Foundation, a 501(c)3 private foundation; the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation; and Chan Zuckerberg Advocacy, a 501(c)4 organization.

Since our launch in 2015, CZI has awarded approximately $2 billion in grants. Grants disclosed from the Chan Zuckerberg Foundation and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative DAF are retroactive to January 2018. See additional information below on the disclosure timeline for Chan Zuckerberg Advocacy giving. This database of our grant giving is updated annually.

Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

Initiative / Program

Justice & Opportunity

Economic Opportunity

For more than three decades, the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) has been at the forefront of national and state debates to advance policies to reduce poverty, narrow inequality and expand economic opportunity. A key component of this effort is to connect eligible individuals to benefits. CBPP does this at the federal and state levels by advancing policies to reduce barriers to access and promoting coordination across programs so families can access the full package of benefits for which they qualify. These efforts include work on the Integrated Benefits Initiative, a partnership with Code for America that is aimed at addressing the lack of simple and efficient state systems to allow people who are eligible for safety net programs like SNAP and Medicaid to apply and enroll.

Fordham University (Fordham Law School, Access to Justice Initiative)

Initiative / Program

Justice & Opportunity

Criminal Justice Reform

The Access to Justice Initiative at Fordham Law School focuses on advocating for greater access to justice for marginalized communities through teaching, direct services, research and advocacy. This grant will fund a summit event and working groups discussions with 80-100 academics, legal service providers, program officers, advocates, industry professionals, tech, government, and community organizers to come together to craft a vision and next steps for the “access to justice” movement. The Access to Justice movement recognizes that for the poor, middle class and people of color, the justice system (both civil and criminal) is a weapon against them and it is often an impediment to their civil rights and legal empowerment. The goal of this meeting is to sharpen the strategy for justice reform by creating a vision for how civil and criminal justice are connected, and to identify key needs and next steps.
