Dream Defenders Education Fund

About

Founded April 2012 after the tragic killing of 17-year old Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, young Black, Latinx, and Arab youth marched from Daytona Beach Florida to Sanford Florida where Trayvon Martin was killed. Today, Dream Defenders Education Fund, a project of Tides Center and its partner organization, Dream Defenders, continues to be a black freedom organization fighting for safety and a good life for all, training thousands of Black and Brown youth, young adults and students, through campaigns, voter engagement and registration, political education, services and the arts. Our agenda is called the Freedom Papers. Through it, they are advancing their vision of safety and security – away from prisons, deportation, and war – and towards healthcare, housing, jobs and movement for all.   Learn about the organization's sponsor, Way to Win.

We take a comprehensive approach toward investing for impact. Today’s challenges require diverse models and tools to drive change. Philanthropy, entrepreneurship, impact investing, and advocacy cannot be siloed if we are to actually solve today’s challenges. We push the boundaries with every dollar and idea, looking for ways to compound impact using every tool at our disposal. For decades, we’ve been innovating in how we invest for impact, looking across sectors, asset classes, and investment types for social and environmental impact.
