Abundant Futures Fund advances immigrant justice with a unique approach and deep knowledge earned over years spent at the juncture of philanthropy and activism, as reflected in these words from leaders in the movement.

I’ve known and worked with Mayra for many years—long before she was involved in philanthropy. She’s strategic, she’s brilliant, and she’s an incredibly practical leader who people trust and respect because they’ve seen her ability to get things done and advance the causes she cares about."

Abundant Futures Fund comes as a welcome response to what organizations like United We Dream have been asking of philanthropy for years: devote resources to create opportunities for us to be experimental, make big bets, and take actions that will help us transcend where we are on immigration. I believe in AFF's leadership and vision for this country's future, and I trust that AFF will help us meet the moment."

As a recipient of funding from Abundant Futures, it’s been incredible to see their support for groups along the entire political spectrum, including the employers that we represent, who depend on immigrants to get work done. Bringing in voices to rebuild a functioning center is so key in our polarized political environment, because politics follow culture, and politicians follow voters—not the other way around."

Being involved in immigration issues since the early 1980s, I’ve watched the advocacy movement weather shifting political winds and adapt to its successes and challenges. In the process, the movement has matured, even as the field of funders has shrunk. By creating a new home for philanthropists, the Abundant Futures Fund provides an important vehicle for socially conscious individuals to maximize the impact of their contributions. This is especially true at a time when the stakes in the immigration realm are so high.

As a philanthropic advisor, I see donor collaboratives as the future of philanthropy. When done right, collaboratives multiply the impact of each donor's resources, spur innovation on complex racial and social justice issues, strengthen movements, and unlock the genius of leaders of color in powerful ways."
