Union Benevolent Association
Philadelphia Community Bail Fund sincerely thanks the Union Benevolent Association for their grant of $20,000. These funds will be added to our revolving bail fund and enable us to free more of our neighbors from pretrial imprisonment. Our average posted bail is $2000, so this grant will enable us to free 10 people right away and others down the line as the bail money is returned to the fund at the conclusion of their cases.
Union Benevolent Association (UBA) is Philadelphia-based foundation established in 1831 that provides funding and support to organizations that help vulnerable Philadelphians access basic needs.
Eagles Social Justice Fund
In November 2018, the Eagles Social Justice Fund granted the Philadelphia Community Bail Fund $50,000 to bail out eight people ahead of Thanksgiving. In addition to posting bail, their award enabled us to provide vital support to people whose lives had been upended by pretrial detention.
Established in 2018, the Eagles Social Justice Fund was formed to provide grants to organizations that work to reduce barriers to equal opportunity, with a specific focus on education, community and police relations, improving the criminal justice system, and other initiatives targeting poverty, racial equality, and workforce development in the greater-Philadelphia area.
