celebrating the future of black philanthropy
As Black History Month draws to a close, we are looking forward to celebrating the future of Black philanthropy on 10th November with the launch of the Black Funding Network. This exciting new philanthropy initiative, led by TFN Member Patricia Hamzahee and Co-Founders Erika Brodnock, Angela Ferreira and Yvette Griffith, will seek to address racial and economic injustice in the UK and will support a wide range of organisations working across the spectrum of social change.
Patricia says: "As we confront calls for racial justice in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd in the US and the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on the Black community here in the UK, philanthropists are being asked to support catalytic change before the headlines fade and attention moves on."
Equality, safety and justice for all have always been at the heart of TFN's mission, but over the last year we have realised that we can do more - and better. We are proud to be working with Patricia and her colleagues as they launch this new initiative which aims to leverage the collective resources of Britain’s Black communities and their allies to create the change we all want to see. Reserve your free ticket for the event here.
In the meantime, if you're looking for ways to learn more about and celebrate Black history, visit Black Cultural Archives' new online exhibition space or take part in the Windrush Caribbean Film Festival, which runs until 8th November and has loads of screenings, talks and events taking place.
