Black-Founded Nonprofits

Support these highly-rated nonprofits uplifting the Black community

Black-Founded Nonprofits Header Image

As Americans focus on finding solutions for long-standing racial disparities, many have been moved to support businesses that are Black-owned.

Inspired by this movement, in 2020, Charity Navigator partnered with Giving Gap* philanthropists Christina Lewis, the Founder and President of All Star Code, Stephanie Ellis-Smith, Founder and Principal of Phila Engaged Giving, and Dr. David Setiadi, an experienced CTO, CIO, and entrepreneur, to amplify a crowd-sourced list of Black-founded nonprofits in an effort to raise awareness and funds for more Black-founded nonprofit organizations.

The charities featured in the Black-founded nonprofits Hot Topic are vetted organizations pulled from the Giving Gap list with a 3 or 4-star Charity Navigator rating. Consider supporting to one of these highly rated nonprofits that are working across a spectrum of categories and cause areas through Charity Navigator's Giving Basket. Your support is an investment in the Black community and will help further racial equity in philanthropic funding.
To help grow the list of Black-founded nonprofits, submit an organization to the list via this Giving Gap form.  To view the nonprofits already on the list, please click here.
