San Antonio Region Justice For Our Neighbors (SARFJON) is a nonprofit organization providing quality, affordable legal services to low-income immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers.
Formed in 2016, SARFJON is a leader in offering community workshops to educate immigrants of their rights. They also host seminars to help community members understand the complicated United States immigration system and policy implications for immigrants trying to follow the law.
SARJFON advocates for compassionate immigration policies that our neighbors deserve as human beings. This local organization is part of a national social justice ministry created by the United Methodist Church.
When the Burnam | Gray team began our partnership with SARJFON, the organization had just expanded its operations from San Antonio to all of South Texas. As a part of the transition, SARJFON sought guidance on revamping its Board of Directors and to how to deliver their mission to the expanded region.
As our partnership grew, we began to work with San Antonio Region Justice For Our Neighbors leadership to develop and implement their first annual fund development strategy. As part of implementation, we coached the team through individual donor asks. We created marketing resources to support the organization’s ambassadors and liaisons in communications, marketing, and storytelling. An important part of our work with the Executive Director is to identify and cultivate new funding opportunities.
It is inspiring to be part of an organization as it grows, expands, and continues in its mission. Our team is honored to play a role in building the capacity of San Antonio Region Justice For Our Neighbors and strengthening their operations.
