About /Mission: Hunt Alternatives Fund advances innovative and inclusive approaches to social change at the local, national, and global levels. 

History:

  • The Fund was established in 1981 in Denver, Colorado by Helen and Swanee Hunt as a private foundation to provide grants and technical assistance in the field of human service.  In 1993, Helen formed The Sister Fund in New York to pursue her own philanthropic work. Since its founding, the Fund has contributed nearly $90 million to social change through a blend of grant making and operating programs.
  • Today, the Fund operates out of Cambridge, Massachusetts and is focused on strengthening youth arts organizations in Eastern Massachusetts, supporting leaders of social movements across the country, advocating for the full inclusion of all stakeholders in peace and security processes around the world, combating the demand for modern-day slavery, and inspiring women to political leadership.
