The Jules Buchanan Fund

The Jules Buchanan Fund

What Is It?

Jules Buchanan was a long-time member of the FIGHT community, a staff member of Project TEACH and a talented fashion designer. He passed away unexpectedly in 2016, and Philadelphia FIGHT has set up a memorial fund to honor his life and contributions.

What Will The Fund Support?

Funds raised will be donated to Safehouse, a new non-profit organization that will be the country’s first safe injection site. Through Jules’ work at FIGHT, he had great concern and compassion for the community of Philadelphians affected by the opioid epidemic. In order to operate, Safehouse must first raise $1.8 million and we want to support these efforts, as the opioid epidemic has negatively impacted the FIGHT community. Donating to this fund gives us hope for a better future.
