The FWD.us Education Fund is a left-of-center grantmaking entity closely tied to, and funded by, Facebook cofounder and Mark Zuckerberg. The organization focuses on promoting left-of-center criminal justice reform and immigration policy changes. The organization also operates a fiscally sponsored project, Informed Immigrant, which aims to provide “all undocumented immigrants with the knowledge and resources they need to feel prepared in our unpredictable political and enforcement environment.” 1
The FWD.us Education Fund is the 501(c)(3) affiliate of FWD.us.
From 2018 to 2021, FWD.us Education Fund received over $75 million from the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative Donor Advised Fund. 2
