ABOUT US

EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES 4 ALL

Gainesville for All was created in 2016 with the help of the Gainesville Sun and the Community Foundation of North Central Florida to seek systemic solutions to problems of race and poverty in the region.

It has had successes in each of its areas of focus, which include education, criminal justice, health and transportation and family support. In the spring of 2021 it played a significant role in winning approval by the city and county of its 2017 recommendation for free RTS fares for riders under age 18 and over age 65.
