FEX Donor Makes Challenge Gift for Criminal Justice Initiative

Monday, January 30th, 2006

More than 2.1 million people are imprisoned in the United States, which has the highest inmate population in the world. Unfortunately, the rate of prison growth and incarceration shows no decline, mainly as a result of mandatory minimum sentencing and draconian drug laws. One Funding Exchange donor has offered to pay the administrative overhead for the Criminal Justice Initiative if we are able to raise $200,000 for grantmaking. Right now, we need $60,000 to meet this goal. So please support the Criminal Justice Initiative with a gift of $1,000, $5,000 or more.
