California Black Freedom Fund

Round 7 Funding grants $3.5 million to 75 Black Powerbuilding organizations

This Black Futures Month, we’re honored to announce the awardees of our seventh round of grantmaking, an investment of $3.5 million dollars into 75 Black Powerbuilding organizations across the state of California!

When we put out our request for proposals last summer, we received an incredible response — over 260 applications, four times the number of applications we expected. This underscores the tremendous need to further invest in funding sources to ensure that all these organizations are able to get the funding they need to uplift and strengthen Black communities in our state. 

This is our most expansive funding round to date. Our grantees are located in regions from Inland Empire to San Joaquin Valley and Central Coast, mobilizing on diverse civic issues including immigrant rights, workforce development, domestic violence prevention, environmental justice, and maternal health. 

Please join us in congratulating these visionary organizations:
