Working people in the United States for the past century have seldom been active in educational or philanthropic foundations. Nor have trade unions built an innovative record of participation in these institutions. Aware of these twin realities, several San Francisco - Bay Area individuals joined hands during the summer of 2000, establishing the Fund for Labor Culture & History.

Attorney Michael Roger prepared incorporation articles, by-laws and tax-exempt documents for our Charter Officers: Robert Cherny, William Ward and Archie Green. The Fund held it's first public event, a celebration of the 85th birthday of Jack Henning, the former secretary of the California Federation of Labor. This event raised funds for the Labor Archives and Research Center at San Francisco State University, targeted for its Endowment Fund for Special Projects.

Honoring Archie, the Board of Directors took action at their November 2011 meeting, renaming the "Fund for Labor Culture & History" to the "Archie Green Fund for Labor Culture & History."

Contributions towards the "Archie Green Fund for Labor Culture & History" from all fellow workers, friends, and acquaintences are welcome.
