The Collective drives capacity-building and organizational resiliency within Black-led and Black-empowered organizations by strategically partnering them with funders to form lasting partnerships that strengthen and sustain the organizations and build meaningful connections between all stakeholders. 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.
