Support Us As We Support Our Community!
Support NEBiP as we inform, reform, and transform the practice of philanthropy in Black communities, particularly those that are predominantly representative of people of the African Diaspora, including African-Americans, African natives, Caribbean natives and Caribbean-Americans.
Our vision is a strong Black community capable of advocating on its own behalf and providing the necessary resources to support its vitality. You can help by donating to one of the following campaigns below.
Our mission is to inform, reform and transform the practice of philanthropy. By supporting our general operating campaign, you are bringing forth a paradigm shift in philanthropy from focusing on Black deficits to shining a light on our considerable potential and financial leverage in order to increase the assets in our communities with the power of Black philanthropy. We are doing this by creating a strong alliance between funders and Black communities. Along the way, we provide tools and resources to help foundations and other giving organizations make informed grant making decisions about their support in our communities.
Inform: Giving Black®
Giving Black® is an initiative that consciously identifies and edifies intentional philanthropic investment opportunities among grant-making institutions in racial-ethnic communities. Through Giving Black®, multiple stakeholders including policy advocates, foundation leaders, scholars, and community leaders convene and collaborate by strategically and systematically planning for and conducting evaluations of their intentional investment portfolios. Through Giving Black® the practical business of devising better approaches to support the needs of and enhance Black communities will result in better outcomes for the people and overall communities stakeholders serve.
Reform: The Couch Conversations
#TheCouchConversations is an online platform to stimulate dialogue and foster connections between concerned community members, philanthropic leaders, and changemakers about the justice system and other policy issues. Up to 7,000 people have viewed the livestream discussions on topics including “Defund the Police: One Year Later” and “What Does It Mean to be Antiracist?” which featured Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Center for Antiracism at Boston University and a 2021 MacArthur fellow.
Transform: The Give Black Alliance
The Give Black Alliance (GBA) is designed to address the fragmented, sporadic funding and low institutional capacity that leads to the deterioration of Black-led organizations.
Our work seeks to create an alliance of Black-led organizations by building an ecosystem around them that supports their growth and donors, particularly donors of color who seek to support Black-led non-profits.
