BLACK FUTURES 360 GIVING CIRCLE
CLLCTIVLY Launches Black Futures 360 Giving Circle!
Our Giving Circle offers opportunities for the community to explore our common interests, set giving priorities and pool our resources to make a greater impact.
Black Futures 360 Giving Circle is about connecting people with causes that matter to them. Our members pool their time, talent and treasure to support Black-led organizations serving in greater Baltimore.
Charity is commendable, but justice is transformational. How will you spend your resources?Shifting Philanthropy From Charity to Justice
CLLCTIVLY launched in 2019 and has invested over $20,000 into Black-led social change organizations!
Why is the focus on Black-led organizations?
Building a powerful Black-led infrastructure for social change will best ensure the changes necessary to create thriving Black communities and to dismantle anti-Black structural racism.
Research shows that annually, approximately 95% of the $60 billion in US foundation funding goes to white-led organizations and that Black-led organizations only receive 2%.
Membership will run from January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. A minimum investment of $360 is required to become a voting member. You can join anytime throughout the year and your membership can be paid in installments. Three hundred dollars of your contribution will go directly to the pool, with $60 covering events for members and operational support.
Our mission is to end the fragmentation and duplication of programs, to learn from and about each other, and to be a resource for the Greater Baltimore community that seeks to find, fund and partner with Black social change organizations.
