About this grant

This grant provides general purposes support to the National Black United Fund, Inc., which promotes charitable giving and volunteerism by African Americans. The organization serves as a national coordinating and planning body for local affiliates that raise money primarily through employee payroll deduction and then distributes the funds to community-based nonprofits serving the African-American community. Over the next two years, the organization will focus on improving its capacity to create communication tools that reach out to a greater number of potential community leaders, encourage greater civic engagement by citizens, and emphasize greater support for family and community development.
