This 2015 research brief analyzes U.S. philanthropic funding trends for Black men and boys and describes recent initiatives and investments supporting Black males. A follow-up to the analysis in Where Do We Go From Here? Philanthropic Support for Black Men and Boys, the brief identifies quantifiable shifts in giving patterns, offers a glimpse at outcomes and impacts of various programs and initiatives, and makes recommendations for future investments.
In 2012, 98 foundations made grants worth $64.6 million explicitly designated for Black men and boys, up from $40.4 million in the previous year.
More than half of all foundation funding for Black males from 2003 to 2012 was distributed in the latest three years.
Education continues to be a top funding priority, but grantmaking for public affairs significantly increased.
The top 10 grant recipient organizations consisted of a mix of national civic, policy, and advocacy organizations. Half of the top 10 list are Black-led organizations.
Recommendations for future investments include increased funding in the area of health and wellness, in southern states, and for general operating support.
