Give Black 2022

Give Black KC is an annual fundraiser that focuses on providing funds for high impact, Black-led

organizations. It is a data driven collective impact strategy that is community-led and community-driven.

Our model is grounded in racial equity to uplift BIPOC communities.

The Problem

We are launching the Give Black 2022 campaign to address philanthropic redlining by empowering

Black-led, Black-serving organizations and increasing access to financial and developmental resources, beneficial to economic mobility and educational strength. There is monumental opportunity ahead of us to close funding gaps to Black-led organizations, which are often the closest to the work and in the best position to have the greatest impact.

The Solution

G.I.F.T. & BeGreat Together has partnered up with the United Way of Greater Kansas City this year with a goal of $500,000. The campaign will benefit 5 Black-led organizations that directly serve the Black communities in the areas of Income, Employment, Education, Mental Health, and Crime Reduction. The 5 organizations are:

GIFT- Supporting growth and job creation for Black-owned business

BeGreat Together- Providing funding for school programs and community change makers

The Future of Us- Providing college scholarships to inner city schools

MOS Providing access to employment resources for Military Veterans

SWAGG INC Reducing the rate of repeat offenses by case management and job

placement/training
