WHO WE ARE
Give Black KC is an annual fundraiser that focuses on providing funds for high impact, Black-led organizations.
It is a data driven collective impact strategy that is community-led and community-driven.
Our model is grounded in racial equity to uplift BIPOC communities.
We are launching the Give Black 2023 campaign to address philanthropic redlining by empowering Black-led, Black-serving organizations and increasing access to financial and developmental resources beneficial to economic mobility and educational strength. There is monumental opportunity ahead of us to close funding gaps to Black-led organizations, which are often the closest to work and in the best position to have the greatest impact.
G.I.F.T. & BeGreat Together has partnered together this year with a goal of $250,000. The campaign will benefit 4 Black-led organizations that directly serve the Black communities in the areas of Income, Employment, Education, Mental Health, and Crime Reduction. The organizations are:
BeGreat Together– Providing funding for school programs and community change makers
Front Porch Alliance– early education home visits, a catalog of year-long school-agers STEAM initiatives, adult reproductive health classes, and minor home repairs for elders to age in place.
WeCode KC– reimagines the intersection of technology and the educational system, creating revolutionary, out-of-classroom learning spaces that provide radical and transformational learning experiences.
We’d like to take the time to say thank you to all of our community partners from GiveBlackKC 2022. With your support of this annual fundraiser, we’ve been able to keep strong, creditable, and necessary organizations operational and active in the KC community. A special shout-out to last years sponsors
