Join us at our Spring Funder to help make a difference to 3 selected Black-led organisations serving our communities
Following the exciting launch of BFN in November 2020 we have hosted three crowd fundraising events supporting 9 wonderful organisations making a difference.
Our next event will be held on 20th April, with three new selected organisations presenting:
100 Black Men
100 Black Men is a charity delivering programmes and activities for young people focused on mentoring, education, economic empowerment, health and wellness since 2001. Some 10,000 young people have been supported through a wide range of engaging activities, from book clubs to sports days.
ADHD Babes is a community of Black women and non-binary people of African-Caribbean descent with ADHD which, since launching during the pandemic, offer a safe space for those with ADHD to flourish and fulfil their potential. They offer programmes, resources and a community of support to meet the unique challenges that the combination of race, gender and neurodiversity bring.
Oxygen Arts is a digital creative agency that specialises in working with diverse communities. As a social enterprise, they reinvest their profits into digital and performing arts training for young people from the global majority in the UK and abroad. They seek support for their Black British Ballet project which will document and celebrate the history and experiences of Black dancers in British ballet during the last century.
We would be delighted to welcome you at our central London venue or if you are unable to attend in-person we would be grateful of any shares & donations you can do.
During the event you will be invited to learn about the three organisations and help them succeed with the support of funding.
No donation is too small, and will make a difference to the impact these organisations are making in our community.
We can’t wait to see you there, and to showcase the three select changemakers in our community who will benefit greatly from your support.
