BLACK GIVING FUND
BECAUSE WE ARE ENOUGH
The Black Giving Fund is a grassroots radical collective that provides direct monetary funds to Black organizers, activists, and change-makers who are guided by Liberationist thought, action, and imagination.
If you are a Black change-maker, you're welcome to apply for a Let Us Be monetary award, assuming applications are open.
All questions and inquiries can be submitted here.
Black people are the best stewards of our funds, and can (and should) decide for ourselves how to marshal resources to meet our needs
This world is built on the enslavement of Black people. We are owed the gains of our forced labor with no conditions or contingencies
Black people prosper when we circulate resources within our communities. We are guided by the practice of mutual giving and shared responsibility
LET US BE
Let Us Be is our fund for Black change-makers. Every month, we select 3 - 5 individuals to receive a one-time $500 gift.
We accept applications the third week of every month, and funds are distributed to selected awardees the following week. Given limited capacity, this timeline may occasionally shift.
The September cycle is now closed. Selected awardees will be made public on our website by Sept. 30th.
Our October cycle opens on Oct 12th
Please read the application carefully. Due to volume, incomplete or incorrect applications will not be considered.
