Seeking Upstream Solutions
A woman was walking along a river and was astonished to see many women struggling in the water. She saw some people pulling the drowning women out of the river.

We are engaged funders, working closely with our grantees and other funders. Together, we take innovative approaches and informed risks that can lead to broad-reaching change.OUR STRATEGY
Chambers Fund works to ensure that more people — particularly those most impacted by economic, social, and political injustice — have a better chance to reach their full potential. To that end, the Chambers Fund Board of Directors has decided to significantly increase the foundation’s investment in two of its program areas: Equity and Democracy, and Women’s Economic Security. This decision is part of a broader philanthropic endeavor fueled by a heightened commitment in these two areas by both Merle Chambers, personally, and Chambers Fund.
