MARIUS JACOB FOUNDATION
A collective and self-managed financial tool to support resistance, alternatives and struggles
We need you!
The Marius Jacob Foundation is an activist and self-managed tool that finances social struggles directly on the field. The basic principle is simple: we bet on our capacity to pool together a maximum of money and we organize its redistributionto collectives and social movements that fight to transform society.To keep autonomous and emancipatory dynamics, to be up to the challenges we are facing, these projects need money.
The more we will be, the more we will be able to think big and support financially a maximum of initiatives.
The foundation is a collective financial tool for emancipation, to support activists, alternative-building and struggles of individuals and collectives, working on changing our system.
We can’t afford to wait for other people to act for us: we are on the front row. We must act at all levels to build societies that put the well-living of people and planet at the heart of their concerns and that reject any kind of violence, exploitation or domination.

How we work
HORIZONTALITY and SELF-MANAGEMENT
Democractic and participative ways of working are important to us. Therefore our way of working is horizontal.The projects that are financed are chosen by a randomly drawn comittee and the different tasks are distributed between the working groups of the foundation.
POOLING and FINANCIAL AUTONOMY
In order to finance the foundation, we count on our collective ability to pool a percentage of our income (for example 1%), but also on donations or bequests in cash or in kind
The Foundation has been created on May 13th, 2019. The first grants will be financed in march 2020.
Mutual income fund

Because, as Marius used tp say:
« Le droit de vivre dignement ne se mendie pas, il se prend »
« La lutte ne disparaîtra que lorsque les Hommes mettront en commun leurs
joies et leurs peines, leurs travaux et leurs richesses, que lorsque tout
appartiendra à tous. »
Marius Jacob, 1905. Anarchist thief.,
