This page was reviewed but not written by the grant investigator. Citizens for Juvenile Justice staff also reviewed this page prior to publication.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended two grants totaling $75,000 to Citizens for Juvenile Justice (CfJJ) for general support. These grants represent a renewal of our 2016 grant recommendation to CfJJ, and will allow it to continue advocating for reforms to the juvenile justice system in Massachusetts, in particular, raising the age of criminal court jurisdiction to 21.

One of these grants was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.

These are discretionary grants, and fall within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
