Historical data tracking philanthropic investment shows a pattern of underinvestment in Black-led organizations. Despite recent philanthropic initiatives focused on uplifting Black communities, there remains no permanent philanthropic network in California solely dedicated to Black issues, empowering Black voices, investing in Black leadership or Black-led nonprofit organizations. Black-led organizations continue to shoulder the long work of systemic transformation. The work of the Black Equity Collective addresses the lack of investment in BLOs by providing organizational resiliency building to support BLOs in building a strong foundation, strengthening external engagement with key stakeholders, and providing a safe space for Black organizations to thrive.

By making a gift to the Black Equity Collective, your efforts will help us continue our mission of strengthening the long-term sustainability of Black-led and Black-empowering organizations across Southern California and building an ecosystem for Black-led organizations, demonstrating our belief that Black permanence is possible...Thanks to supporters like you!

Increase the impact of your gift to Black Equity Collective. Contact your employer’s human resource department to see if your company offers a matching gift program.

"[The Black Equity Collective] will be a transformative model in promoting investment in Black-led organizations. Cal Wellness is thrilled to be a partner in this journey." 

- Judy Belk, President & CEO, The California Wellness Foundation.
