About us
In case you were wondering
Who we are

JustChange is a national network of changemakers committed to supporting the local community through giving circles

What we do

JustChange accelerates great ideas through $1,000 bi-monthly grants to initiatives proposed by individuals or organizations that provide positive environmental, social and/or economic outcomes

How we do it

Every two months the JustChange board seeks out ideas through a ‘Request For Proposals’ and then collectively chooses which one to fund

“Never underestimate the power of a small group of people to change the world. In fact, it is the only way it ever has.”

Margaret Mead
