BUTLER IN THE PRESS
Money Moves at the Speed of Trust
Our Executive Director, Molly Schultz Hafid, serves as the Chair of the JustFund Board. In 2023, the Butler Family Fund proudly joins more than 700 funders on the portal which has moved over $170 million to mostly Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)-led organizations since 2017.
Common Application Panel Discussion
We were honored to participate in a Funder Hui panel discussion at the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation. The topic was on the concept of a Common Application, which is an equitable solution to relieve burden on both grant makers and grantees.
Integrating a Trust-based Approach to Philanthropy
We were a featured panelist at the semi-annual meeting of Lehigh Valley Community Foundation’s Donor Advised Fund holders. It was an honor to partner with LVCF to encourage their fund holders to support more BIPOC-led efforts locally and encourage donors to streamline their giving by using Trust-based Philanthropy practices similar to Butler’s.

Butler Family Fund is proud to serve on the Selection Committee of the first ever Muslim Collaboration Prizes.
