Join Black History Month, Every Month

Celebrate Black History Month by committing to give back every month. Come together with a network of racial justice supporters across the country to learn about and support nonprofits that are Black-led and supporting Black communities. By joining our giving circle, you will come together with our group members each month to network, learn, and donate together.

“I think that our movements against white supremacy are dangerously underfunded. I want to meet other people interested in funding such movements and see how we can support aligned movement organizations getting to the scale this moment needs them to be at.”

“I'm passionate about change. I see so many groups of people that have been dealing with the same injustices for so many years, it's disgusting, it's draining. Change is necessary.”

Karine (KJ) Williams

“I believe that engaging in community is critical to my individual development and effectively achieving systemic change. Being in community is an intentional decision I am making. I recognize that with community comes diversity in all of its forms. I am here for it. Sometimes things are hard in community and harm is caused - I am here for the healing. I want to give and be intentional in my giving. I want to know that whatever I am able to give is being sown in good ground. I believe in what grapevine is facilitating and that's why I have joined.”

“I believe in racial equity and eliminating structural racism. In order to do this we must build our own financial freedom within our communities, organizations, and in our own personal lives.”
