All funded partners are required to participate in an iterative institutional strengthening/capacity building process (Applicants not funded during this initial round will be invited to participate on an optional basis) This process will include both collaborative activities among Black-led social change partners and tailored specific offerings. BLPP is excited to provide an opportunity for partners to develop their own capacity building plans, not dictated by the funder. Further, through these capacity building offerings, BLPP hopes to further establish and strengthen collaboration and partnership among local, Black-led social change organizations.
Requirements are Black-led social change organizations, defined as 501c3 with predominantly Black board and executive leadership, staff leadership and constituents (50% or more) who are focused on root cause interventions that address one or more of the L.O.V.E. principles Live, Own, Vote, and Excel.
