Strengthening and Sustaining Black-led and Black-Empowered Organizations

Black Equity Collective

Launched originally as the Black Equity Initative in 2017, today, the Black Equity Collective is dedicated to filling the philanthropic giving-gap in Black-led organizations located in the Southern California counties of Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino. The Collective advances organizational resiliency within Black-led and Black-empowered organizations by strategically partnering them with funders to form lasting partnerships. The Black Equity Collective is the only philanthropic network in California that uses Black equity as its central principle to improve outcomes for Black people and their communities. Through this framework, The Collective is fundamentally changing the relationship between philanthropy and the Black community.
