PHL COVID-19 Fund
Philadelphia Community Bail Fund is a proud grantee of the PHL COVID-19 Fund, a collaboration between the Philadelphia Foundation, the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, and the City of Philadelphia. The $50,000 grant made in early May 2020 will enable us to free more of our neighbors during this pandemic and provide critical support for those coming home.
Union Benevolent Association
Philadelphia Community Bail Fund sincerely thanks the Union Benevolent Association for their grant of $20,000. These funds will be added to our revolving bail fund and enable us to free more of our neighbors from pretrial imprisonment. Our average posted bail is $2000, so this grant will enable us to free 10 people right away and others down the line as the bail money is returned to the fund at the conclusion of their cases.
Union Benevolent Association (UBA) is Philadelphia-based foundation established in 1831 that provides funding and support to organizations that help vulnerable Philadelphians access basic needs.
Eagles Social Justice Fund
In November 2018, the Eagles Social Justice Fund granted the Philadelphia Community Bail Fund $50,000 to bail out eight people ahead of Thanksgiving. In December 2019, they granted another $15,000 to support our efforts to bring on full time staff.
Established in 2018, the Eagles Social Justice Fund was formed to provide grants to organizations that work to reduce barriers to equal opportunity, with a specific focus on education, community and police relations, improving the criminal justice system, and other initiatives targeting poverty, racial equality, and workforce development in the greater-Philadelphia area.
