Border Fund


The Border Fund is dedicated to strengthening key organizations that work to create healthy, vibrant, inclusive communities in the California-Baja California region.

As of August 2018, ICF is directing donations to the Border Fund to grassroots organizations serving vulnerable migrants and deportees in Tijuana including but not exclusively, Casa del Migrante Tijuana, Centro Madre Asunta, Espacio Migrante, Deported Veterans Support House, Dreamers Moms/USA-Tijuana, and Friends of Friendship Park.

The Border Fund supports some of the grassroots organizations in Tijuana who are working tirelessly to cover the basic needs of migrants and deportees who are stuck in Tijuana with no support system. This is the flip-side of the family separation crisis that is receiving so much attention in our US media stream.

Through a gift to the ICF Border Fund you can help to provide shelter, food, medicine, psychological support and legal services to the growing population of migrants and deportees in Tijuana.

As the go-to international grantmaker in the San Diego-Tijuana border region, ICF is uniquely positioned to understand and research the issues, identify strategic partners, and quickly respond to situations as they arise.

The Border Fund will be used to cover this work and address situations as they arise.
