The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $100,000 to the Center for Story-Based Strategy (CSS) for general support. CSS intends to use most of these funds to organize a narrative strategy convening and training in Chicago with the Coalition to End Money Bond. CSS will also continue to provide individuals and organizations in the criminal justice reform sector with narrative strategy support.

This discretionary grant falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
