Michael Pace

The Social Good Fund is a center-left nonprofit organization and donor-advised fund provider that fiscal sponsors numerous activist organizations, including Climate Disobedience Center and the far-left agitation group Showing Up for Racial Justice.

The organization’s founder and CEO is activist Michael Pace. [1]

Background

The Social Good Fund operates similarly to other donor-advised fund providers, such as Fidelity Charitable and Charles Schwab Charitable, and makes grants to other 501(c)(3) nonprofits. The Fund also provides operations, financial management, and fundraising resources for its fiscal projects, such as Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), a left-wing activist group. [2]

Projects

Showing Up for Racial Justice

Showing Up for Racial Justice’s (SURJ) goal is to pressure white Americans into conversations around left-wing interpretations of race and organizing for far-left racial justice movements, such as Black Lives Matter.

SURJ claims over 120 affiliate chapters in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada. Various chapters have hosted events, participated in marches and rallies alongside radical groups like Black Lives Matter, and encouraged members to support asylum seekers.[3]

SURJ’s program centers around SURJ Faith, SURJ Families, Disability Justice, and an annual Poor and Working Class Gathering. It provides written resources on topics such as the alleged characteristics of a white supremacist culture, including “worship of the written word,” “individualism,” and “objectivity” and a cross-class capacity tool to help people understand how to bring white people “across the class spectrum” to tackle “white supremacy” and engage in the “complex struggle and beauty of collective liberation,” among other left-wing programs. [4] [5]

Climate Disobedience Center

Climate Disobedience Center (CDC) is a far-left environmentalist agitation group known for “nonviolent civil disobedience projects,” which include placing false bids for public lands, blocking pipeline construction projects, and closing manual shut off valves carrying Canadian oil into the United States. [6] [7] [8]

The organization’s founders and current leaders are environmentalist activists Tim DeChristopher, Marla Marcum, and Jay O’Hara. [9] DeChristopher has served time in custody for federal felonies related to his misrepresenting himself as a bidder for natural resource development rights; he “won” rights valued at $1.8 million for which he could not pay. [10]
