Two familiar faces join our Staff of Instigators!

We’ve come a long way since Diverse City Fund (DC Fund) was a group of activists huddling at then-Emergence Community Arts Collective in 2010 and 2011!

DC Fund is now proudly led by its first-ever Executive Director and is expanding its team, including a Program Manager, and (since December 2023) a very part-time Administrative Coordinator and Communications Intern.

While Diverse City Fund has been a volunteer-run organization for the majority of our history, we are becoming the fund BIPOC-led movements fighting for systemic change need right now. With the help of our staff of instigators, DC Fund will continue to expand our support for movement leaders as they take bold and impactful action towards systemic change.

🎉Welcome Jaqui Santos & Kush Kharod! Both have served on the Grantmaking Team and are connected to prior and current DC Fund grantee partners. They have now transition to the Staff of Instigators. Read more about them here.
