Haymarket People’s Fund gives money to grassroots groups of local organizations across the region who believe that change is possible. We’ve been behind the scenes, providing money to almost every major social justice movement in New England since 1974.

Peace Development Fund

The Peace Development Fund (PDF) was founded in 1981 when a small group of donor activists came together with a common vision of funding social justice and peace through a public foundation. PDF was founded on the belief that lasting change will come only when a large amount of people are well informed and empowered to make change. PDF has always believed that true democratic change must take place from the bottom up. That change can only endure with citizens who are both informed and clear about what they believe.

The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls

The National Council is committed to abolishing incarceration for women and girls. The prison experience increases trauma in women and, if they are mothers, to the children they are separated from. It deepens poverty in the individual lives of incarcerated people and the overall economic stability of their communities. We believe that the current criminal legal system has failed and needs to be dismantled. We have better solutions. Join us in our work to end incarceration of women and girls.
