The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $250,000 to the Community Justice Exchange (CJE) via the Tides Foundation for general support. CJE is a new organization that will house the National Bail Fund Network, which we have supported previously. CJE intends to use these funds to support information exchange across campaigns working with bail, court watching, participatory defense, and similar approaches, and to support particular campaigns seeking to implement litigation and policy wins relevant to bail reform.

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