BPI recognizes that there are local groups/organizations doing impactful work within the black community that may not align with their current grant focus of advancing equity in education, which will have its grant cycle in Spring 2020. BPI also acknowledges that there are local groups/organizations doing impactful work that are newer and/or have smaller budgets than their counterparts and believes it is important to invest in these groups.
The Impact Grants program is designed to invest in organizations/groups with annual budgets of less than $150,000 doing work within the black community that aligns with one of the four main areas in BPI’s Rethinking Philanthropy
report (education, jobs and wages, poverty and civic engagement).
