Thank you!

This year’s gala was all about power—the power of our community to come together to fight for what we believe in, and to celebrate each other and our victories.

We had a great time—close to 600 people were part of an evening of celebration and recognition of the hard work that goes into building our local movements for justice.

By coming together and giving, you contributed over $1 million dollars for grassroots organizing in New York City and the Hudson Valley. See the highlights here:

Thank you to our fabulous honorees:

Who is North Star Fund?

Since 1979, North Star Fund has helped fuel the movement for a more just and equitable city. Through effective and strategic grants and technical assistance, and by inspiring donors to move resources to communities directly affected by injustice, North Star Fund has helped grantees win better schools, housing, healthcare, working conditions, and stronger families for all New Yorkers.

At the 2018 Gala, we debuted this video that shows a part of our community of social justice movements who are working to shift power.
