Safeguard Democracy Fund
*** Do you have an existing donor fund with MCF?  If so, please log into your account in the Giving Center to make your donation to the Safeguard Democracy Fund there. ***

The Safeguard Democracy Fund is a new collaborative fund that aims to facilitate donor efforts to protect democracy during a crucial election year.


All donations will be put to timely use to drive voter turnout and ensure that laws and proper structures are in place to protect legal votes and prevent executive-branch overreach. Grant decisions will be made by experts who are closest to this work and actively engaged in these efforts in communities.


MCF donors Ginnie and Pete Haas Jr. have generously pledged up to $250,000 in matching donations through May 31, doubling the impact of every dollar contributed to the fund. 

We are aiming to raise $500,000. Donate soon so critical resources can be mobilized in time to have the intended impact. This fund will remain open through October 31, 2024.

Should you choose to support this organization or project, your contribution will be made to Marin Community Foundation, a California nonprofit public benefit corporation that is a tax-exempt public charity under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).

Contributions made via the Donation Center are distributed by MCF to the donor’s intended recipient. In the case of MCF pooled funds, where donations are collected into a single fund and then granted to multiple organizations, MCF receives your donation and distributes the total collected funds to the grantees for that fund. Your contribution may take up to 45 days to be received by MCF and sent to the intended recipient organization. No fees are assessed on any specific donation to or from a fund. The full amount of your contribution to MCF constitutes a charitable contribution that may be tax deductible. Donors should consult their personal tax advisors for any questions regarding tax deductibility based on their personal tax situation.

In some instances, for reasons outside of MCF’s control, a contribution may not reach the intended recipient. This may be due to the intended recipient’s loss of federal or state tax-exempt status or other reasons. In such a case, MCF will select another recipient organization based on its sole discretion.

If you choose to support an organization by visiting their website to donate directly to the organization, Marin Community Foundation does not accept or hold any donation or receive fees from any donation made directly to another organization.
