BMAfunders, a project of the Campaign for Black Male Achievement and Foundation Center, highlights the role of philanthropy in supporting Black men and boys.
Black male achievement is not just a “Black issue,” it’s an American issue.
About the Project
BMAfunders strives to facilitate engagement, catalyze collaboration, and promote strategic decision-making in the field of Black male achievement, serving as a resource not only to funders, but also to nonprofits, policymakers, and anyone else interested in fostering Black male achievement. A go-to source for data and information related to Black male achievement, BMAfunders features a variety of resources, including an interactive mapping tool with funding data, a timeline of philanthropic milestones in the field, a toolkit for assessing project outcomes, a comprehensive collection of research reports, descriptive case studies of work on the ground, and multi-media content.
More About the Project
As illustrated by the data below, nearly every major indicator of economic, social, and physical well-being shows that Black men and boys in the U.S. do not have access to the structural supports and opportunities needed to thrive. This results in negative consequences not only for Black males themselves, but also for society at large. These data points underscore the importance of why Black male achievement matters.
A collection that aggregates publicly available reports, case studies, and evaluations focused on black men and boys and represents a vast amount of collective intelligence developed over the years by nonprofits, foundations, and other organizations working in the field. It is our hope that grantmakers, practitioners, academics, policymakers, and others will be able to use the knowledge gathered here to inform their work.
The Executives’ Alliance is a national philanthropic alliance that will “evaluate promising approaches, advocate for effective public policy and systems change, and invest in young men as assets for America’s future.”
