Supporting Black-founded nonprofits is an integral piece to advancing racial equity.

Americans give $450 billion to charity each year, but only a tiny fraction of that goes to Black organizations. Our focus is on Black-founded nonprofits because they are the ones most likely to be grounded in the needs of the Black communities, have missions connected to positive action for Black lives, employ Black people, and empower Black leaders, while also being most likely to be systemically underfunded.

We're proud to now help Black-founded nonprofits #CloseTheGivingGap.
