A Message from The Black Fund Steering Committee: 

Austin Community Foundation and the leaders of The Black Fund care deeply about the Black community’s evolving needs here in Central Texas. The Black Fund was created to unleash the power of Black-led organizations and uplift solutions to benefit the Black community.

Since launching in August 2022, The Black Fund has awarded $855,000 to 46 Black-led and Black-serving nonprofits in Central Texas. We are extremely proud of this milestone and are honored to support these organizations in their work for an equitable, just society that nurtures the growth, economic mobility, and wellness of Black people.

After completing two grant cycles, The Black Fund Steering Committee has decided to pause grantmaking in 2024 to reflect, listen, and learn from our community. We seek to reevaluate our theory of change to ensure it still meets the needs of Black Central Texans.

The goal has not changed—The Black Fund aims to make a lasting positive impact that can sustain generations. Upon launching the fund, we understood the immediate need to infuse resources into our community. As we embark on the next phase of the fund, we are making time to listen with great focus and intentionality to inform the next grant cycle and beyond.

Thank you for your patience as we work together towards a stronger, more inclusive Austin.
