How does my money make a difference?​

SURJ Marin raises funds on behalf of local organizations led by people of color, whose mission is to primarily serve the needs of local communities of color.

SURJ Marin is part of a growing national movement of white people allied with and accountable to Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) that are working to dismantle white supremacy in all its forms. We value justice and the inherent value of every human being.

Our current partners are the Multicultural Center of Marin, Marin City Arts and Culture, and Marin County Cooperation Team.  We donate a minimum of 75% of our proceeds to these organizations. The remaining amount is used to support our events and workshops, and to compensate speakers of color. When we share our proceeds with our partners, we are telling them that we, as an organization composed of majority white people, value their work. Your funds enable us to share a message of solidarity with these organizations and the people they serve, and let them know they are not alone in their fight for justice, equality, and equity.

Fiscal Sponsor:
SURJ Marin is a very small, volunteer-run organization. We rely on our fiscal sponsor, Syzygy Dance Project, to process our donations. As a 501(c3) nonprofit organization, Syzygy provides SURJ Marin with fiduciary oversight and financial management to ensure fiscal accountability of any funds we raise.

Syzygy is a registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, Federal Tax ID #770559202. Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. No goods or services are provided in exchange for your contribution.

We do not share or sell the personal information of our donors nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.
