who we are
About the Black Funding Network
Our Founders are business leaders and experienced philanthropists who understand the needs of Black non-profit community organisations and donors who want to change the lives of Black people.
how it started
Research from the Ubele showed that 9 out of 10 Black and Minority Ethnic led organisations were facing closure during these challenging times.
In seeing the serious economic and social inequities from the pandemic and the murder of George Floyd, four phenomenal Black professional women – Erika Brodnock, Angela Ferreira, Yvette Griffith and Patricia Hamzahee – came together to answer the question “how can we help?”.
They wanted to find a small yet significant way to support Black-led non-profit organisations in the UK that needed help leveraging the collective resources of Britain’s Black communities (and allies) to create social change. They built a giving circle for those who want to be intentional with their donations. The focus is supporting Black-led organisations facing a lack of access, awareness and resources when navigating the complex mainstream philanthropic ecosystem.
They agreed that it was time for action and Black Funding Network was born.
