Chicago Community Bond Fund — Support for the Coalition to End Money Bond (2021)

Chicago Community Bond Fund
Award Date:
To support the Coalition to End Money Bond.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $85,000 to the Chicago Community Bond Fund (CCBF) to support the Coalition to End Money Bond. After the coalition’s work on the issue, the Illinois legislature passed the Pretrial Fairness Act earlier this year, which will end money bail in the state and could significantly reduce the statewide jail population. In collaboration with the Coalition and Illinois Pretrial Justice, CCBF intends to use these funds on efforts to implement the act, and to support and coordinate state and local organizers working on other pretrial reform issues.

This follows Open Philanthropy's October 2019 support and falls within its focus area of criminal justice reform.
