who we are.

Make a Difference

We invest in change-making, working alongside Canadian community, philanthropic, political, and business organizations to ensure that Black-led, Black-serving, and Black-focused (B3) non-profit, charitable, and grassroots organizations have the sustained resources and infrastructures they need to make a meaningful impact.

Issuing Grants, Resource & Research Opportunities

We award grants to organizations serving Black people in Canada to resource programs or research that seeks to address long-standing issues in priority areas.

Collaborating with Key Stakeholders

We advocate within the philanthropic sector and with all levels of government with a specific mandate to allocate and distribute resources toward Black people in Canada. ​

Influencing Government & Corporate Policy

We impact societal change and foster social innovation through direct action, enabling strategies, funding and investment policies and informing decision-making.
