   LEVEL PLAYING FIELD INSTITUTE LAUNCHES THE FAIRNESS FUND

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (January 1, 2005) – In the spirit of acknowledging the
innovative ways organizations are working towards fairness in their communities, Level
Playing Field Institute established the Fairness Fund.     Supported by a grant from the
Mitchell Kapor Foundation, the Fairness Fund enables Level Playing Field Institute to
provide small, one-time grants to organizations who share their commitment to fairness
and inclusion in education and workplaces for underrepresented students/persons.               
“We recognize that achieving fairness is a big job, and that we cannot do it alone,” says
Caroline Barlerin, Level Playing Field Institute’s Managing Director.  “We are eager to
help support valuable work and thinking beyond our walls.”

Evolved from their former grants program, the Fairness Fund allows Level Playing Field
Institute to exercise its entrepreneurial spirit through proactive small-scale funding.         

 Their goal of establishing the Fairness Fund is to be a resource for organizations committed to
revealing and removing barriers to fairness.     The Fairness Fund will strategically invest in
projects that increase access to opportunities for underrepresented persons/students, and
fund the development and dissemination of relevant toolkits, best practices, curriculums,
etc. that continue to level the playing field.

The Fairness Fund allows Level Playing Field Institute the rare opportunity for a non-
profit organization to both create and run programs of its own, and support other
organizations doing great work in this important sector.

                                                   *
Level Playing Field Institute is a non-profit organization with a mission to promote
innovative approaches to fairness in higher education and workplaces by removing
barriers to full participation.  For more information and Fairness Fund guidelines, please

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
