Black Women Impact Grants is a $10 million grant program with an open call application process for Black women-led charitable nonprofits. 50 organizations. Seven impact areas. One ambitious goal.
Those who are closest to the needs are closest to the solutions.
We heard you. Through over 50 listening sessions and feedback from nearly 20,000 Black women across the country, we heard that Black women-led and Black women-serving nonprofits need:
- Access to trust-based, general operating funding
- Multi-year commitments to meaningfully plan, build, and implement their work
- Access to visible sponsorship and validation from institutions across sectors
Funded by the Goldman Sachs Foundation, Black Women Impact (BWI) Grants will support community-driven charitable nonprofit organizations created by and for Black women and girls. As part of the One Million Black Women initiative, our goal is to positively impact the lives of at least one million Black women by 2030.
50 Black women-led organizations will receive general operating funding ranging from $50,000 to $250,000 over two years.
Applications to Black Women Impact Grants are now closed. We look forward to announcing the 50 awardees in June, 2022.
