We are delighted to announce the three selected changemakers from our Summer 2022 Applications.
The new organisations pitching for your support are:
Urban MBA – The University for Street Entrepreneurs works to develop enterprise skills so no young person is lost or left behind. Through Urban MBA we empower marginalised and disengaged young adults (not in education, employment or training) with the conﬁdence, knowledge and focus to strive for success and independence.
5 Aside Theatre – Promotes awareness of the African Caribbean communities to Britain through partnerships with arts organisations, other charities and schools events to produce community events that promote well-being, healthy living, sports camps for children on free school meals as well as training emerging artists as community theatre performers and workshop leaders.
Mindwalk Yoga – Mindwalk Yoga exists to represent and empower Black women to embrace yoga for their well-being. Black women in the UK are at a higher risk of mental ill-health, are disproportionately impacted by social detriments associated with mental illness and are more likely to seek treatment only when at crisis point.
We appreciate that making donations during these challenging economic times is a big ask. We also know that supporters of Black Funding Network appreciate how precarious the positions of small, under resourced non-profit community organisations are. They continue to feel the impact of Covid19 on activity planning and income generation as well as face reduced funding from local authority and other funders.
Black Funding Network is proud to have raised over £48,000 for six organisations at two events. We hope this, our third Crowdfunder, will be as, if not more, successful. This will only be possible if you join us, making any amount of pledges that you can afford. It is our collective generosity that makes a difference, coming together to tackle racial disparities and social inequities in order to sustain our communities. This is how you can be intentional with your giving.
In addition to any donation you may want to make, of money or your time and expertise, we ask that you share this invitation to as many of your friends, family and colleagues as possible. We are working to build a giving circle for the long-term.
Please register for our virtual Summer Crowdfunder on 9th June 2022 here.
