CBFF supports Black-led organizations through fast, flexible, and responsive philanthropy that meets their biggest challenges. Our grantmaking addresses organizations’ key concerns and mitigates obstacles preventing Black power-building in California to ensure our grantee partners’ success.
Responding to Shifting Demographics
With many Black communities moving (or being priced out of) urban centers, CBFF is using census data to track where Black Californians are living and working. CBFF utilizes this data to inform grantmaking and supports Black leaders as they seek to engage and organize their communities.
Providing Flexible Funding
CBFF offers flexible grants for operating costs because we trust in Black-led organizations to use resources that best support their short and long term goals.
Investing in Wellness and Healing
Black-led organizations are on the frontlines, suffering from and responding daily to injustices. This work takes a toll on staff and leaders, who report being mentally and physically exhausted. As a result, CBFF supports Black-led organizations in their efforts to provide healing and wellness opportunities to staff so they can continue their important work to fight for equity and justice.
