About Abundant Futures Fund

Abundant Futures Fund (AFF) is a new funder collaborative launched to widen the circle of donors supporting the immigrant justice movement by raising $100 million in the next five years. This is the first national effort of this magnitude focused on increasing resources for immigration issues. The Fund was founded in 2022 by the Emerson Collective, Ford Foundation, and JPB Foundation, who committed a total of $60 million.

At AFF, we believe there are abundant resources and opportunities in the United States for both immigrants and those born in this country to thrive. We also believe that, even in a highly polarized political environment, we can work together toward our shared goals to create meaningful change. As a grantmaking organization, we focus on finding and funding opportunities that can enhance the lives of immigrants today while also laying the tracks for transformative change on immigration.

AFF is a fiscally-sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.
