Starting in 2022, Arch will make one $25,000 award per year to an organization focused on healing justice or focused care for individual organizers and their communities.


Leslie Preston Healing Justice Grants are in honor of Arch Community Fund co-founder Leslie Preston, who died in 2018 at age 51 from cancer. These awards honor her spirit of care for community organizers.

How to Apply

Leslie Preston Healing Justice Grants are at the discretion of the Arch Trustees. If you feel your organization is a good candidate for this award, please contact us directly.


In 2022, Arch made an inaugural Leslie Preston Healing Justice award to Justice Teams Network.
