Borealis Philanthropy announced the re-launch of its Immigration Litigation Fund (ILF), which supports impact litigation efforts challenging immigration enforcement policies and practices that are inhumane, unjust, and unlawful. The fund will also support advocacy, convenings, organizing, and communications related to impact litigation efforts.
The ILF is a national funder collaborative whose goal is "to ensure that the nation’s immigration enforcement system is fair, humane, and prioritizes the civil and human rights of those vulnerable to deportation." Since its launch, the ILF has provided more than $3 million in funding to over 60 grantees. The ILF is a collaborative effort of the Ford Foundation, JPB Foundation, NoVo Foundation, Open Society Foundation, Reis Foundation, and Anonymous Donors.
Interested applicants should carefully review ILF Funding Priorities, FAQs and contact to Borealis staff at ILF@borealisphilanthropy.org to discuss the project BEFORE submitting an application.
