2021 Black Empowerment Works Information Session
May 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
We are excited to announce we are now accepting applications for the second cycle of Black Empowerment Works. Just like last year, there are two ways to take part in the program: (1) apply to be a grantee and (2) apply to serve as a reviewer – one of the people responsible for selecting the next grantees.
Each year, we seek to fund a diverse portfolio of ideas and programs representing different focus areas, organizational structures and communities. This grant opportunity is open to nonprofit organizations, for-profits/social enterprises, community coalitions and groups, and individuals who meet the eligibility requirements. Applicants may submit only one application per year, with request amounts ranging from $2,500 to $25,000.
Deadline to Apply: July 8 at 11:59 p.m.
In the Black Empowerment Works program, community members make the investment decisions. We seek to bring together a diverse and engaged reviewer pool with representation across age, race/ethnicity, gender, geography, experience and perspective. No prior experience is required! All reviewers will receive training to prepare for the opportunity.
Deadline to apply: June 18 at 5:00 p.m.
