Black Equity & Excellence Endowment Fund

The Community Foundation is committing to invest a minimum of $1 million over the next few years through a new Black Equity & Excellence funding priority. Our support will focus on building community dialogue, increasing the capacity of Black-led organizations that are supporting historically underserved communities, and supporting projects that counteract systemic racism. Learn More

This endowment was created to ensure the Black Equity & Excellence Fund has a permanent source of income to meet future needs. Your contributions to this fund will help us sustainably foster the fund’s mission to support organizations whose boards and staff leadership are primarily Black, to reverse patterns of historic underinvestment and build the momentum necessary to create lasting social change for the community.
