The Crown Circle comprises donors supporting The Bold Project.

The Bold Project™ is an NGAAP Initiative with Black Organizations Leading Differently.

• Paving a new path
• Breaking down barriers
• Elevating Black leadership

NGAAP aims to lead Charlotte in achieving racial funding equity by paving a new path in philanthropy, breaking down barriers, and elevating the vision and voices of Black leaders who are committed to building economic, social and political power to uplift Black communities, ensuring everyone can flourish.

Just imagine the possibilities if, together, we even the playing field!

INVEST IN A BETTER FUTURE FOR ALL OF US

Nonprofit organizations with Black founders and leadership are at the forefront of providing crucial support and resources across Charlotte-Mecklenburg. These nonprofits benefit not only Black children, women, men and families—one-third of the city—but also a wide spectrum of communities of color and marginalized people.

They are often well-recognized beacons of hope and opportunity, delivering critical services, offering training, and giving voice to those frequently unseen and unheard. Even so, Black-founded and led nonprofits are chronically under-funded.

Funding equity is imperative to strengthen Charlotte’s Black-founded, Black-led and Black-benefitting nonprofits, which form the backbone of our communities.

4 PILLARS FOR BUILDING UP, TOGETHER

To support of these vital nonprofits and the people they serve, The Bold Project is designed to:

1. FUNDING: Advocate for greater and fairer funding;
2. LEADERSHIP: Invest in developing effective champions for racial equity;
3. NARRATIVES: Provide platforms for nonprofits to tell their own stories and share their truths; and
4. NETWORKS: Build trusting relationships to cultivate supportive networks
