Foundation For Black Philanthropy is a collective power that celebrates the strong tradition of Black giving in our community.
Giving back - whether through time, talent or treasure - has long been a tradition within the Black community, but this collective philanthropy can sometimes go unrecognized. Imagine a region where Black giving is celebrated and uplifted, empowering individuals, emboldening communities and strengthening nonprofit organizations.
Foundation For Black Philanthropy offers the opportunity to not only imagine such a place but make it a reality. We believe in the power of collective impact. And we are ready to transform your generosity into a better, bolder region.
