DescriptionThe Fund was created by the founders of the Champion Spark Plug Company. The Fund works with others to bring about social justice. The Fund supports groups of people who come together to organize their community, build power, and challenge the social, economic, and political conditions that bar their access to participation in a democratic society. The Fund seeks a just society in which all persons are treated with dignity and assured their fundamental rights, including equal access to the basic necessities of life: food, shelter, safety, health care, education, livable wages, and a clean environment. The Fund also strives to engage those whose participation in our democratic society has been systematically denied. The Fund works to build a nation in which all citizens are free to exercise their rights regardless of race, ethnic origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, economic status, or religious persuasion. The Fundís Core Grants program focuses on supporting community organizing in the Midwest Ė specifically in an eight state region that includes Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
