Description

It's a celebration! Join Black Benefactors as we commemorate 10 years of giving time, talent and treasure to nonprofits that serve the black community in the Washington, DC region.

Help us celebrate our new grantee partners, made possible by our member donations:

  • The Black Swan Academy empowers black youth in under-served communities through civic leadership and engagement, giving them a comprehensive set of tools needed to succeed in life and become active social catalysts in their communities. Activities include civic leadership out-of-school time programs at three school sites in Southeast DC, an annual Youth Civic Leadership Summit, “I Have Pride” Black History & Culture Writing Contest and Showcase, and community forums. Grant: $10,000

  • ScholarCHIPS, Inc. provides college scholarships and a support network for youth with incarcerated parents, empowering them to complete their college education. The organization serves graduating high school seniors and college-aged youth with parents in prison, many of whom are the first in their family to attend or complete college. ScholarCHIPS has three program components – Scholarship, Mentorship and Professional Development, and Advocacy and Outreach. Grant: $5,000

Kick off the holiday giving season by supporting black philanthropy right here in our community!
