What we do

What We Stand For

Black communities

Black communities bear the brunt of structural inequities in education, health, justice, and more due to policies and systems that create advantages for Whites and disadvantages for Blacks.

Centering on Black lived experienced

We believe Black leaders and founders have incredible lived experience and strategies to address the inequities plaguing Black communities. However, biases inherent in philanthropy, result in disproportionately less funding going to Black-led agencies. This is a proven fact.

Elevating the Qualified and Equipped

We believe Black leaders and founders are uniquely qualified and equipped to address the harms perpetrated on Black communities. They’re impassioned and have incredible lived experience with racial oppression.

Building & Harnessing Power

Strengthening Black-led organizations’ fundraising capacity unlocks the critical funding resources necessary to advance their movements, and ultimately strengthen their organizing, power-building and impact.

Achieving Black Liberation

Strengthening Black-led organizations and movements will ultimately enhance the liberation and self-determination of Black people and Black communities across the globe.

Pushing for Racial Justice

Black-led organizations are operating mission-critical, high-impact programs, yet they continue to be denied the critical funding resources they need to thrive. We’re working to help shift this paradigm.

Who we Work With

While we’re unabashedly Black we welcome participation from People-of-Color-led nonprofit agencies in the fight for equity and systems change.

We welcome Black-led and People of color-led nonprofit leaders and founders looking to build their fundraising capacity to strengthen their organizations’ effectiveness. Their roles include but are not limited to: nonprofit development and advancement professionals (CDOs, development directors and managers), executive directors and founders, board members and more.
